Computing studies is a collective name given to a number of different, but related disciplines all centering on digital computations and their influence upon man. A common misconception about computing studies is that it is a purely applied field and that it is a service-oriented field, one that aims to serve other disciplines. In fact, computing studies covers both deep and theoretical fundamental knowledge, and technology-oriented and applied knowledge. It thus covers a continuum from purely theoretical and fundamental studies of natural phenomena related to computation to the use of computer technology to solve practical problems of applied nature.The faculty of Computer studies & Information Technology at UGC offers a balanced program in computing that covers both the theoretical aspects and its applied side. Because of its balanced coverage, the degree offered bears the title: Bachelor of Science (honors) in Computer Studies and Information Technology. It aims at graduating students who have the necessary practical skills that allow them to apply the latest technologies to develop practical applications and the requisite foundations and theoretical background of computer science that allows them to have a clear understanding of the field. Such understanding will help them in extending their practical skills on solid grounds.
