The BS Computer Science program at HITEC University endeavors to produce computer scientists and highly skilled programmers, who can play a productive role in software industry, research and the academia. The program comprises of eight semesters (four years) and covers essential courses in the field of computer science. Additional elective courses are also offered to develop in-depth knowledge in the specialized areas
During the last two semesters, every student is required to take a six credit hours final year project with the aim to undertake practical industrial problems by utilizing the knowledge and skills acquired during the course of study planned in different semesters of the program.
