About Computer Science - Unicaf University Malawi at Unicaf Scholarships

Computer science is a rapidly growing field and is, de facto, an essential component of the Information Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

Computer Science is the science, theory and practice of computational applications. Computer scientists communicate with computers through appropriate programming languages and codes and develop the systems and software that enable computers to operate. This requires an understanding of, and an ability to manipulate, algorithms and associated mathematics. Computer science feeds into Information Technology, which centres on the use of computer systems, including their application for network and database design. These information technology aspects are incorporated into the Unicaf University BSc programme so that students have a well-rounded technical skill set for their future career development.

Computer science is a major source of technological innovation through the development of new software and computer applications, often leading to entrepreneurial activity. For this reason the Computer Science programme at Unicaf University incorporates modules on management, innovation and entrepreneurship, and an introduction to e-business. Graduates of the programme are therefore in a position to engage with the management and business side of the ICT sector, as well as the technical side of ICT, and have a starting point to launch their own business should they so wish.

The Unicaf University BSc programme in Computer Science consists of 20 modules, each contributing 24 credits to the final qualification. The programme structure and module composition is outlined in detail in section 4. The online nature of the programme allows it to be accessed by working people as well as full time students.

What students think about Unicaf Scholarships

    The story of Emmanuel Okoli

    “During my studies, I learned how to think and write scientifically, research independently, use several resources and evaluate the right information. The MSc Organisational Psychology programme has helped me to widen my knowledge of human behaviour in the workplace. I developed evaluative, research, interpersonal, and analytical skills necessary for pursuing my doctoral studies. It has also broadened my view of workplace communication, relationships, interactions, leadership, management, and organisational culture. I acquired skills that will prepare me for the challenges that lie ahead.

    After graduation in 2020 with an MSc in Organisational Psychology, I immediately applied for a PhD programme in the USA. Undoubtedly, my Master’s degree from Unicaf University was my gateway to living and studying abroad. 

    Finally, I  honestly feel that this would not have been possible without Unicaf University and its scholarship programme. I strongly advise you never to lose sight of your dreams. Seize this opportunity and apply for studies at Unicaf University to gain quality education and internationally recognised qualifications that can open a path to a prosperous career.”  

    Emmanuel Okoli, Nigeria - MSc in Organisational Psychology, Unicaf University in Malawi 

    The story of Shirley Amimo

    “My Unicaf experience has been excellent so far, and the Liverpool John Moores University online Master’s programme that I have enrolled in was the best choice I have made this year. I was fortunate enough to get a generous scholarship and good guidance from my Unicaf student adviser, which, I must say, has lifted a huge burden off my shoulders. Anyone who has not tried Unicaf is missing out on getting an international quality education at an affordable cost. Online learning is very convenient, especially for people like me, who cannot attend on-campus classes or travel abroad to study.” 

    Shirley Amimo, South Sudan - MA in International Relations, Liverpool John Moores University

    The story of Mohamed Shaban EL Hamshary

    “After receiving my PMP Certification and after participating in many managerial committees inside ELSEWEDY – Electric, decided to expand my managerial knowledge and skills by studying for an MBA degree with a reputable British University such as the East London University. I was able to earn a British MBA online, at an affordable cost and without putting my career on hold, thanks to the Unicaf Scholarship Programme.”
