Computer Science (BBusSc)
At University the emphasis in Computer Science is on the
principles underlying computing, including the structure and nature of the
computer itself, the development and use of programming languages, as well as
the application of the computer as a tool in problem solving.
Computing, when combined with Business Science, provides the
student with an understanding of scientific management as well as the skills of
a computer scientist which equips him/her for the consultancy profession. This
course is an excellent combination of in-depth computer skills and management
techniques. It allows the student to subsequently choose either a technical or
Students in Computer Science should be precise and able to
work out the solution to a problem in a logical manner. He/she also needs to be
creative, resourceful and responsible. A good pass in Higher Grade Mathematics
in Matriculation examination is required.
A wide variety of careers are open to graduates in Computer
Science. Some examples include:
- Systems Analyst/Designer, the link between the programmer
and the user converting the users requirements into system designs;
- Programmer, the conversion of system designs into a form
understood by the computer. Application programmers are concerned more with
business requirements, whereas technical programmers are concerned primarily
with more complex tasks.
- Technical specialists are experts in areas such as data
communication networks, databases and operating systems.
- Research and Development, both in the commercial and
university worlds, is a rewarding experience for those that are academically
