Business Computing

The Department of Business Computing was founded in  1983 and through its continuous and sophisticated evolvement has  rightfully been established as the benchmark of excellence for teaching  and research in the area of Business Computing in Cyprus.

 

The Department has set standards of unprecedented  value and thrives on the notion that knowledge acquired through the  conventional teaching processes must be complemented by application  experiences and critical thinking skills.  A fundamental pillar of our  philosophy is the preservation of the broader ethical and social  principles in all aspects of Computer Programming, Information Systems,  Databases, Networks and their application in Business Administration.

 

The Department offers an undergraduate hybrid degree  programme in Business Computing. Our Business Computing programme aims  to provide you with a broad understanding of computer hardware and  software and the applications of computers in the areas of commerce,  industry and the public sector. It also provides a background in  business, organisations and accounting. Wherever possible the emphasis  throughout the programme is on the practical aspects of the subject  material.

 

The necessity for good communication skills is also  stressed and an important part of the programme is the Systems Analysis  unit in which students are required to make oral and written reports and  presentations. Furthermore, we have a ‘Cisco Networking Academy’  status, and offer their highly coveted networking courses that lead to  the CCNA, CCENT and CCNP professional certifications.

 

Whilst the course structure ensures that students  develop the necessary level of understanding and skills in the relevant  areas of computing, it also seeks to develop a sound knowledge of the  Business operation and structures within which Computing technologies  are applied. The options available permit the orientation of studies  towards the more technical areas of information systems and computers in  organisations or management aspects of business organisations.
