Course Details

Computer Sciences is a comprehensive field of study that teaches computers how to perform which language system and the algorithms they have told them to do. Computer Scientists specialize in designing and developing software, digital mobile applications and desktop applications, and web pages. Some of the key learning areas within Computer Sciences are Computer Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud & Network Infrastructure, Security, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and Software Engineering. Computer Sciences focuses on teaching you how to write software and logically organize thousands of lines of code so that programs can do what they need to do. Programmers should be able to identify coding errors by removing the error. Students will also learn how to store information and create user interactions. To be a successful computer scientist, you need to have an intelligent mind, strong mathematical knowledge, problem-solving skills, and the ability to analyze and compile data.

The Heriot-Watt University Computer Science degree focuses on usable systems and building robust. As well as cutting tools and cutting tools, it is designed to help you build the next generation of software tools that other developers will use. The course aims to provide a well-integrated balance of educational support and practical experience, strongly informed by the research technology of academic staff. All Year 3 students participate in a year-long group project, in which they work together to address a larger, more realistic problem. 4th-year students run a large, year-round project for each thesis. You can benefit from our international campuses by participating in the Inter-Campus Transfer. This gives you the opportunity to study Computer Science at our Dubai semester or year. Graduates in Computer Sciences pursue lucrative careers such as game developers, software engineers, IT consultants, database administrators, etc.
