About the Course


The BSc (Hons) Computing Programme is a course run in partnership with Leeds Beckett University, UK, that gives students the unique opportunity to gain a British degree from right here in Nepal. 


The curriculum provides detailed knowledge of the key aspects of computing, from the forefront of the discipline - and gives students the ability to undertake computing projects at a professional standard, by the consistent application and review of development, management, and evaluation methods and techniques.


Students studying this course will gain highly sought-after skills in computer programming, database development, networking, website development, systems modelling, and computer security - which are vital for gaining entry into organisations which demand confident and technically equipped computing graduates. 


This wide breadth of understanding enables students to be enterprising when devising and sustaining arguments and further teaches them to solve problems using innovative ideas - by implementing learned techniques in a multicultural and globalised world.


These are vital skills for gaining entry into organisations that demand confident and technically equipped computing graduates.
