Computer sciences study theory, design, development and application of software and software systems. Computer sciences follow two main objectives: to design, using specialised methods and techniques, advanced information systems that ensure broad access to information; and to ensure efficient use of all available system resources. Computer sciences include all activities related to the design and operation of automatic data processing systems that help increase the efficiency of human activities. The computer sciences discipline is connected to similar disciplines such as: library and information science and applied mathematics.

There are three main areas in computer sciences: theoretical computer sciences, applied computer sciences and computational /technical sciences.

Main subjects Masters in Computer Sciences focus on include: data structures and algorithms, software engineering, network security, human-computer interaction, neural computation, cloud computing, web application development, and more.

By graduating a Bachelor in Computer Sciences, future professionals achieve a basic understanding of mathematical analysis and logical deductions and gain the ability to research, acquire, use and critically evaluate complex data. Students will develop creativity in solving complex problems through the use of abstract elements and statistical analysis. They will also gain a high attention to details and abilities in recognising versions of the same problem in different settings.

Graduates can follow career opportunities like: game developer, system analyst, system developer, IT consultant, database administrator, configuration specialist, technical analyst, and more.
