Computer Program


The computer program in the preparatory year introduces students to ethical aspects of computer, information security and privacy, as well as to the two major elements of a computer system namely hardware and software. Moreover, the students get acquainted with productivity tools such as word processing programs, presentation software, spreadsheet software, and database software. They learn the required skills to use computers and to create, view and modify general office documents (documents, memos, letters, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, etc.). Regardless of their major, all students will be using some of these applications extensively during their college level studies. The computer courses are lab-based, and the learning is blended, combining traditional face-to-face classrooms and individual online study. The availability of numerous state-of-the-art laboratories and highly qualified faculty members make teaching and learning highly effective. The two computer courses contribute to the preparatory year program learning outcomes.
