Mr. Prakash Neupane
I was invited in some of the interaction program for encouraging student in BSc. CSIT, I saw most of students were confused with lot of advertisement of subject in newspaper and other media. Showing the syllabus and content doesn’t make big deal them cause most of them can’t understand it in details. I usually tried to cover lot while speaking about BSc CSIT, but may be missed unknowingly or may not that orientation and interaction program don’t cover all the interested students all over of Nation. So I think it will better to write some point on Why BSc. CSIT?
First remember I am not going to engrave why not BE, BCA, BIT, BCIS, BSc IT.
BSc CSIT is not just an IT(Information Technology) it is append with CS(Computer Science), we don’t like to pronounce IT, Computer science is not the same as IT, We focus on principles and technology, not how to use computer applications in CS.
BSc CSIT cover minimum 126 credit hours, remember minimum, because we can also add more credit by giving more exams we have lot of extra electives.
126 credit hours comes from 75 credit hours of core Computer Science, 15 credit hours of electives, 12 credit hours of Natural Science, 6 credit hours of Management, 6 credit hours of math, 3 credit hours of Technical Writing and 9 credit hours form Project and Internship
Student can learn most of important courses up to 3rd years and last year is totally designed for advance implementation so in 7th semester student have to do major project(including 100 marks) and 8th semester student have to do an internship (including 200 marks).
There are lot of research that tells ICT can be changed very rapidly so everything should be update with that change, and I believe this course has been done all this thing, This course update very frequently based on recent demand and market.(even some subject and added after I passed it)
Someone said to make a perfect thing there must be 3 E; i.e Education, Environment and Experience. CSIT is good course in Nepal so it is good education, About the environment, we(students, teacher, university) have created good bond with each other, We have lot of schedule that we togetherly conduct. Students are more over good about doing different game, workshop, sharing. I hope this will result for good experience in each student in life.
When you study computer science, you will learn about the fundamental principles of the science as well as advanced techniques that are used for practical systems development.
You can get statistics of job trend, demand and average salary offered of CS is inhttp://www.itjobswatch.co.uk/jobs/uk/computer%20science.do
Computer science has certainly become a core discipline — a discipline of study in itself — and one that continues to grow
It’s clear that computer science is a huge discipline with extremely broad application. But what about the job market for computer science graduates? A degree isn’t terribly useful unless it’s possible to use that degree to launch a career. I am taking some references fromhttp://www.cs.colorado.edu/why/
