FACULTY OF COMPUTING

Faculty of computing

The Faculty of Computing provides the education and variety of skills necessary to succeed within high technology environments in industry, society and the church, and for software and hardware design, manufacture and maintenance in this decade. Through projects involving real life applications, students are given broad background knowledge of the technological enterprise system within a framework of moral and ethical guiding principles. Specifically, students are exposed to experiences that enable them to:

1       Know why information processing is essential in the electronic world.

2      Value modern technology, and appreciate the role computers play in the society.

3       Handle simple tasks differently and better, e.g. process  data,  store  and  retrieve information through the use of existing smart microcomputer applications.

4       Use the available software and hardware to simulate the physical world for improvement.

5      Acquire the ability to integrate information systems into the business environment, and to exploit methods of leveraging business functions through information systems.

6       Receive technical orientation and managerial skills for strategic use of information systems.

7       Acquire  fundamental electronic knowledge  of  the  digital computer

8       Proceed to graduate study in computer science, computer engineering, software Engineering, Information Technology

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to build minds for leadership through quality information systems and computing integrated with Christian education, transforming lives, impacting society for positive change through the pervading influence of our graduates and staff, computing services to humanity.

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security. The term applies in a variety of contexts, from business to mobile computing, and can be divided into a few common categories such as application security, network security, information security, end-user training, operational security and disaster recovery among others.

Cybersecurity is of significant importance in our current age as many medical services, private, public, and even government entities experience an increasing number of security breaches every day. Some of these sectors are more appealing to cybercriminals because they collect financial and medical data, but all businesses that use networks can be targeted for customer data, corporate espionage, or customer attacks.

The increasing number of users, devices, and programs in the modern enterprise, combined with the increasing deluge of data – much of which are sensitive or confidential – brings to light the importance of cybersecurity. Also, the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attackers and attack techniques compound the problem even further. Hence, this specialization can equip students with the requisite knowledge and skills necessary to provide an organization with a good security position against malicious attacks designed to access, alter, delete, destroy or extort such an organization’s or its user’s systems and sensitive data.

Computer Science: Gives the scientific foundation for software engineering, just as electrical engineering mainly depends on physics.
