Ateneo de Manila University
Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science (BSCS)
The objective of the BS degree in Computer Science is to enable the students to be competent computer professionals as well as to perform further studies in this area. It is a 129 credit hour program requiring about 4 years to complete. During the first two years, the students are introduced to the fundamentals of Computer Science. This comprehensive introduction lays foundation in computer programming, data structures, computer hardware organizations, engineering mathematics and theory of computation. In this period, the students are also exposed to broad based pure science courses namely Physics and Chemistry, and a wide range of liberal arts courses, such as English, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, and other social science and business courses. Almost all the CSE courses are accompanied with embedded laboratory sessions apart from the three explicit 1-credit laboratory courses. The third year concentrates on broadening the fundamental knowledge in Computer Science and its applications. It potentially forms the basis for the student to become a well-balanced computer professional for the future. During the fourth year, students are encouraged to deepen their understanding in areas of particular interest and ability with emphasis given in the Management Information Systems courses exposing them to the systems used in the business community.
