Program Learning Outcomes Bachelor of Computer Science

The program learning outcomes developed by the Computer Science component of the degree program are composed of the following dimensions:

Enabling Knowledge
This outcome allows one to apply knowledge effectively to new situations and learn from the experience.

Critical Analysis
In general, this allows one to examine and consider accurately and objectively any topic, evidence, or situation.
More specifically, this outcome allows one to:

  • Analyse and model requirements and constraints for the purpose of designing and implementing software systems;
  • Evaluate and compare designs of such systems on the basis of requirements of the organisational needs.

Problem Solving
In general, this outcome allows one to analyse problems and synthesise suitable solutions.
Specifically, this outcome allows one to:

  • Design and implement software systems that accommodate specified requirements and constraints, based on analysis or modelling or requirements specification.

In general, this outcome allows one to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences through a range of modes and media.
Specifically, this outcome allows one to:

  • Present and explain complex software systems solutions, alternative solutions, and decision recommendations to both IT and non-IT personnel via technical reports of professional standard and technical presentations.

Team Work
In general this outcome allows one to work as an effective and productive team member in a range of professional and social situations.
Specifically, this outcome allows one to:

  • Work effectively in different roles, to form, manage, and successfully produce outcomes from teams, whose members may have diverse cultural backgrounds and life circumstances, and differing levels of technical expertise.

In general this outcome refers to accepting responsibility for one's own learning and make informed decisions in judging and adopting appropriate behaviour in professional and social situations. This includes accepting the responsibility for life-long learning.
Specifically, this outcome allows one to:

  • Effectively apply relevant standards, ethical considerations, and an understanding of legal and privacy issues to designing software systems.
