With the digital era continuing to develop rapidly, the role of computing and its impact on our lives is more important than ever. New and innovative computer technologies are constantly unveiled, with software engineers, systems developers, programmers and analysts playing a vital role in their creation and development.
Our Computer Science course focuses on modern approaches to software systems development, allowing you to explore both the theoretical and practical skills needed to understand programming language concepts, software design methods, secure web systems, computer architecture and computer networks.
The course prepares you for various career opportunities, from programming and developer roles to software engineering, with computer technology closely linked with an extensive range of industries such as medicine, education, entertainment, security and architecture.
- Our diverse curriculum provides students an equal balance of theory and practice and is embedded with contemporary technologies designed to tackle modern multi-core platforms.
- Important professional issues include computer ethics, law, and security. Final year study includes big data, machine learning, and AI.
- Tailor your learning to your career ambitions through optional third-year modules, including Functional Programming, Advanced Web Development, Fuzzy Logic and Inference Systems, and Privacy and Data Protection.
- The programme leaders are experienced professionals dedicated to ensuring students receive a high-quality education. They are readily available to answer any questions or concerns students may have regarding the accreditation process or the course content.
- DMU Dubai students can now benefit from the Industry Advisory Board, which comprises leading experts and professionals at the enterprise level. The board provides valuable insights and guidance to ensure the curriculum remains relevant and current with industry trends and demands.
- Benefit from Education 2030, where a simplified ‘block learning’ timetable means you will study one subject at a time and have more time to engage with your learning, receive faster feedback and enjoy a better study-life balance.
We want to ensure you have the best learning experience possible and a supportive and nurturing learning community. That’s why we’re introducing a new block model for delivering the majority of our courses, known as Education 2030. This means a more simplified timetable where you will study one subject at a time instead of several at once. You will have more time to engage with your learning and get to know the teaching team and course mates. You will receive faster feedback through more regular assessment, and have a better study-life balance to enjoy other important aspects of university life.Read more about Education 2030

Teaching and assessments
On this course, you will benefit from Education 2030 - DMU’s new way of delivering courses. Through block teaching, you will focus on one subject at a time instead of several at once.
The teaching methods delivered on this course include staff directed learning via lectures, tutorials and laboratories, in addition to student-centred resource-based learning (including web-based resources), collaborative and group working, individual learning and student-centred learning via individual research / literature review.
Students will be assessed via a range of methods including time constrained phase tests, portfolios of work, programming and other laboratory exercises, examinations, project work, individual work and group work.
As a Computer Science graduate , you have a wide range of career options available to you. Whether you choose to work in the industry or pursue further education, your knowledge in computer science will open doors as software engineers, computer engineers, systems engineers, database managers, software developers, and web developers for various multinational companies. You can also continue your academic careers by embarking on postgraduate study in either research or taught areas, which provides opportunities for further specialisation and the enhancement of existing skills.
