Welcome to the Faculty Of Pure & Applied Science
Computer science is concerned with understanding, designing, implementing and using computing systems, ranging in scale and complexity from the tiny components of a single processor to the globe-spanning internet. The core concepts of computing have their roots in mathematics and logic, such as what it means to compute, and what Problems can or cannot be computed. It also concerns the practical techniques of programming computers to solve real and difficult problems, and there are many links to other subjects, from psychology (how humans interact with computers, how computers can be given human capabilities) to electronics (how to exploit digital circuitry and peak efficiency, the possibilities for parallel and quantum computing). This intellectually challenging subject underpins the core technologies of the 21st century, and can be a route to many different career paths.
Our graduates have excellent career prospects. The vast majority make direct vocational use of their qualification in the IT industry. Increasingly however, our graduates also find work in the trades, industries and professions that rely heavily on computing systems, including media, communications, finance, energy and medicine.
The Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology provides students with the knowledge and skills to be information and communication technology professionals, with particular skills in a chosen area. The course focuses on computer and network configurations, web and application programming, and database design and maintenance. Students also have the opportunity to specialise in a particular aspect of ICT-related filled. This course is ideal for students who are seeking an ICT course with flexible outcomes.
Graduates are using their skills in:
- Research and development
- Product and process design
- Technical sales and support
- Field and test engineering
- Project management
- Systems design
- Power plant operations and quality control
Estate management is quite a broad term for a number of areas that include property management, surveying, business and finance and the built environment and essentially the subject is primarily concerned with the valuation and management of land and buildings in the public and private sector.
We realized that Africa is a developing continent and therefore needs estate surveyors and valuers who will assist in managing, providing and carrying out improvements on buildings and infrastructure on the one hand, and in expanding urban property markets on the other hand. There also is a need to create an atmosphere for the development of the total man, via the vehicle of education and pioneering mental productivity to produce a new generation of leaders and solution providers.
Graduates may go on to careers in management within the estate and property industry, surveying or valuation practices, estate agencies, local and national government, retailers, financial institutions or general management. Estate management prepares you for work in the property sector, but also equips you with highly desirable and transferable commerce and business skills.
Our Bachelor of Agriculture gives you the skills and knowledge to apply science to significant real-world issues.
The Bachelor of Agriculture degree will:
- Strengthen your foundation knowledge in basic agricultural sciences
- Help you to understand the broader industry context
- Integrate cross-disciplinary subjects at each year level
- Give you an important global perspective
- Improve your communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills
- Expose you to the latest precision farm technologies at our Dookie campus
- Provide many opportunities for external practical placements.
In the first year of the course you’ll focus on a solid foundation in agricultural science, with core studies in biology, natural environments, agricultural production and agricultural science. In second and third year you’ll have the opportunity to pursue your interests by selecting a major in plant and soil science, animal science or agricultural economics.
As an Agriculture student, you will develop core practical skills across plant and soil science, animal science and agricultural economics and examine key aspects of agricultural production from scientific, economic, environmental and ethical points of view.
You will also work in cross-disciplinary teams to apply your knowledge to solve major industry challenges – from improving animal production and welfare to addressing climate change and food sustainability.
