Field of Study:Computer and Information Sciences, General
Description:Our 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. 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.

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.
