BSc Computer Science 理學士(電腦科學)

BScCSC

Short Description

The Department of Computer Science was established in 1984, and has evolved from a teaching-oriented department into one that excels in both teaching and research. The Department launched its first BSc in Computer Studies in 1987 (renamed and restructured as the BSc in Computer Science in 2000), followed by the MSc in Computer Science in 1991. The Department produced its first PhD graduate in 1994. In addition to offering traditional courses such as the foundations of computer science, computer architecture and software engineering, our curriculum exposes students to the latest advances in cloud computing, data science, machine learning and bioinformatics. Students have the opportunity to undertake a major design and development project in an area such as data science, virtual reality, multimedia, computer vision, cloud computing and information security. All teaching within the Department is subject to stringent quality assurance procedures.

The Department maintains state-of-the-art computing facilities, including a private cloud infrastructure to support teaching activities and a high-throughput computing cluster for computationally intensive tasks involved in various research activities. The Department’s research foci include bioinformatics, cloud computing, data science, evolutionary computation and metaheuristics, information security, machine learning, mobile computing, multimedia computing, software engineering, computer vision and graphics. Our staff members have contributed intellectually and professionally to the advancement of these fields.

The Department currently offers the following major:

  • BSc Computer Science

HKDSE students will be considered for direct admission to the BSc in Computer Science programme offered by the Department of Computer Science. This is one of the leading Computer Science programmes in Hong Kong, providing students with a well-balanced curriculum and solid education in both the theoretical and practical aspects of computing. This foundation enables students to lead successful careers as professional software developers, system architects, system analysts and technology officers. Besides acquiring a broad knowledge of Computer Science, students may elect to specialise in various technology streams such as information security, multimedia, software engineering/project management and data science. In addition, our one-year Information Technology Professional Placement provides students with the opportunity to put their learning and skills into practice and to gain valuable real-world work experience, thus giving them a head start in their careers.
