Bachelor of Science Major in Computing and Information Systems (Post Diploma) - BSc CIS (PD)
The Bachelor of Science Major in Computing and
Information Systems (Post Diploma) program is designed especially for
students holding a computing-related diploma who wish to pursue a
university degree to further their career or academic interests.
BSc CIS (PD) program features
BSc-CIS (post diploma) program is specially designed for students who
have already completed a college diploma in computing or related areas,
and wish to pursue a university degree.
- Balanced curriculum:
BSc-CIS (PD) is aimed to strike a balance between computing science and
information system design and development, a balance between theories
and applications. While graduates from the program are well qualified to
embark on their graduate studies in computer science or other closely
related areas at other universities, they are equally well prepared for
jobs in the IT industries.
- Specializations: By taking a
suggested list of elective courses, graduates from the program can
acquire more specialized knowledge and skills in certain areas of
computing and information systems, such as Web development, network
administration, Java programming, game development, and others.
Since all courses required for completing the program are delivered
online in a self-paced mode, students can study whenever and wherever
they like, which means they can take the program while fulltime
employed; they can study less when they are busy at work, and spend more
time on courses when they are on leave from work or on holidays.
Students can complete a course within just few weeks, or take up to a
year with paid extensions.
- Technology empowerment: Courses
required for completing the program are delivered through modern
computing and e-learning technology and systems, which are continuously
being developed and enhanced.
- Help and mentorship: From the
beginning of their program studies, help and mentorship are available to
students from a variety of sources such as program director, program
advisors, professors and tutors. Students have the maximum freedom in
their learning schedule and learning style, but they are not alone.
For every course, a tutor is assigned to each student. Students can
interact with the tutor for everything related to the course content.
Timely responses can be expected from tutors in all cases. Through
course forums and other computer mediated communication utilities,
students in the same course can interact with each other for help and
