Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims&Learning Outcomes

The BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing and AI consists of the following degrees. It aims to give students the flexibility to choose their degree in their first year of study.

  1. The BSc (Hons) in Computer Science aims to equip graduates with solid computing foundations in areas such as programming, computational thinking and data structure, which will allow them to develop professional computer systems and software. Students develop strong problem-solving abilities and become highly competent in software development for virtually all sectors.
  2. The BSc (Hons) in Enterprise Information Systems aims to provide graduates with a good foundation in both business and technical skills. Graduates are extremely competent in investigating business systems, identifying options for improving those systems and bridging the needs of business with the use of IT. They also have the ability to develop information systems and manage business projects in the commercial sector.
  3. The BSc (Hons) in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence aims to cultivate financial technologists who can develop intelligent software applications and innovative finance solutions by equipping them with good fundamental computing knowledge with a focus on AI, sound finance concepts, and the strong intellectual and practical skills they need to apply computing technologies in finance and related areas. They will be able to adapt to today’s fast-changing technologies, economies and societies.

Programme Characteristics

BSc (Hons) Scheme in Computing and AI

  • Common first year. Students admitted to the Scheme do not need to decide on their final degree in the first year of study and can select their study paths in the second year.
  • Rich study pathways. The programme’s relatively few core credits give students the flexibility to take on a Minor study in other disciplines they are interested in, such as Business Administration, Financial Services, Social Science or other Engineering disciplines. They can also take additional Computing subjects to continue or specialise in one or more technical stream.
  • Applied and practical. The curriculum covers up-to-date practical skills in both content and teaching methodology, e.g., iPhone technology.
  • Master’s degree. Students can be admitted into the Department’s Master’s programme. They can gain a Master’s degree with one extra year of study.
  • Recognition and Scholarship. Many departmental scholarships are available for students, recognising both their academic and non-academic performance.
