WELCOME

Our lives would be unrecognizable without computing and electronics.

The Computer Science discipline is unique because it provides a focus for convergence of technologies. Its uniqueness naturally defines its role and dictates its increasing relevance in several disciplines and modern practices and techniques. The scope of application of computer science in the modern scientific and technological context is, therefore, infinitely wide. Students are equipped in the Department and are thus encouraged to function, research and engage in collaborative projects in wide professional contexts.

To provide the enabling environment for the effective and efficient evolution of highly motivated staff and students with strong determination and impetus to compete globally. In consonance with the mission statement of the University, the Department is determined to advance the frontiers of research and academia in the perspective of information technology, by the development of internationally competitive manpower. From making businesses run smoothly to gaming and simulating behaviour, many everyday processes have a basis in computing, while advances in electronics have made the internet, innovative telecommunications and inexpensive computing possible. At UNN, Department of Computer Science, we teach and research at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, in all these areas and more.

Our research is changing people’s lives and underpins tomorrow’s must-have technologies. Research and development has to stay one step ahead of the industry, so our curriculum is constantly evolving. Our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence – we’re not your typical geeks!

You’ll have a unique experience here, as well as inspiring purpose-built facilities, consistently top-ranking levels of student satisfaction, and a curriculum that is led by the needs of industry. Regardless of the study path you choose, you’ll develop the skills and principles for a rewarding career.
