Bachelor of Science Honours in Information Technology Degree 

(From 2019/2020)

This four year Honours Degree Programme offer a wide range of knowledge and skills in information technology discipline. The students who get selected, will have to opt for either the BSc Hons in MIT degree programme or the BSc Hons in Information Technology degree programme, at the end of the first year of study. The final assignment of the student into the degree programme will be done, based on student performance and preference.  The subsequent three years of the BSc Hons in IT degree programme will focus on building the information technology competencies of the students, depending on their career objective. The programme is designed taking in to consideration the increasing national and international need for computing professionals. The curriculum of the programme follows the latest guidelines of recognized professional bodies such as the ACM and IEEE and aims at equipping students with necessary knowledge and skills to choose a career in the field of information technology including Software Engineering, IoT Engineering, DevOps Engineering, IT Security Enginerring, Data Engineering, and Data Science.

Apart from the knowledge and skills, both degree programmes also inculcate the necessary soft skills required for the graduates to be successfully absorbed to the professional world.
