Why Study Informatics & Computer Science?
The Faculty of Informatics and Computer Science at the British University in Egypt is an effective and modern Faculty offering a diverse range of specialisms. The overall mission of the Faculty is to provide Egypt, and the Middle East, with a British style of education of the highest quality, and to supply graduates that feed and stimulate industry and commercial activities.
Informatics and Computer Science is concerned with the scientific, technical and human dimensions of information technology, in which computers feature to a substantial degree. Informatics and Computer Science is also concerned with the study, applications and social consequences of information technology.
The real purpose of informatics is to create novel and effective solutions to such problems as:
- How information technology can be used to solve business problems
- What is best way to design and build an information technology solution
- How to make sure that a proposed information system meets its requirements
- How we increase the effectiveness of information technology solutions
Informatics and Computer Science involves knowledge derived from many disciplines; Science, Engineering, Economics, Management, Sociology, Law, and Psychology.
The Faculty maintains close partnerships with industry in Egypt and beyond. The future of our society depends on individuals who are disciplined and organised, as well as creative and multi-skilled. No profession or organisation nowadays can afford to function without effective information technology solutions, and creating them requires individuals educated in an innovative and adaptive manner.
Students in the Faculty study in an environment that encourages diversity and innovation. Staff members are not just academic experts in their fields, they often have real life practical experience which are brought to their subjects, as well as close contacts with the ‘world of work’.
Students in the Faculty learn not just “what to think but how to think.”
In autumn 2009, the British University in Egypt celebrated the graduation of its first cohort. Among them were the first graduates of Informatics and Computer Science. They were nine graduates – six in Computer Science specialization and 3 in Information Systems specialization.
Today, ICS has more than 700 students. There are four active specializations; Computer Science, Software Engineering & Information Systems launched in 2009 and Computer Networks launched in 2010. In addition the ICS Master of Science degree programme started in September 2012. Currently, the Faculty has 30 Teaching Assistants and 15 full time Academic Staff members.
