About Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computer Science Bachelors Degree program.

The Mathematics and Computer Science degree program at Taita Taveta University  is designed to equip students with the mathematical tools needed to understand modern areas of computer science such as algorithms, graphics, robotics and computer vision.

The course concentrates on areas where mathematics and computing are most relevant to each other, emphasising the bridges between theory and practice. It offers opportunities for potential computer scientists both to develop a deeper understanding of the mathematical foundations of their subject, and to acquire a familiarity with the mathematics of application areas where computers can solve otherwise intractable problems. It also gives mathematicians access to both a practical understanding of the use of computers and a deeper understanding of the limits on the use of computers in their own subject.

The first year and part of the second year of the course are spent acquiring a firm grounding in the core topics from both subjects; students are then free to choose options from a wide range of Mathematics and Computer Science subjects. In the second year students take part in an industry-sponsored group design practical.
