The course involves allied subjects of study, such as computer science, mathematics and physics, with equal emphasis given to each of these three majors.
The program essentially aims to provide enrolled candidates:
As an academic discipline, Computer Science encompasses scientific and practical approaches to computation and its applications. It is a systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures or algorithms that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage and communication of information, and access to information.
The course covers various aspects of programming concepts involving:
Statistics is the branch of mathematics concerned with the collection, classification, analysis, and interpretation of numerical facts, for drawing inferences on the basis of their quantifiable likelihood (probability).
Enrolled students are taught various aspects of basic statistics, sampling theory and estimation, testing of hypotheses, applied statistics, and design and analyses of experimental and operational research.
Mathematics is the science of numbers, quantity, and space, either as abstract concepts, or as applied to other disciplines, such as physics and engineering. This Math-based course’s curriculum covers various aspects of algebra, calculus, geometry, differential equations, real analysis, and numerical methods.
