Program

Computer Science bachelor`s degree Program

Objectives

  • To raise the level of environmental awareness of the students, and provide them with the necessary knowledge, capabilities and attitude. This will enable them to deal more positively with environmental resources and their components, through learning about the diversity and complexity within the environment and the changes and transformations that occur through human activities. To raise the environmental awareness of the student regarding the importance of applying the sustainability aspects for computing projects as well as the preventive technology for environmental conservation.
