College of Computer Studies
“We regard computer literacy as one of the most important factors for success in today’s digital economy, and it’s the reason why UL’s College of Computer Studies continues to innovate smarter tools and programs – all with the aim of making a real difference in the world.”– Engr. Diosdado C. Caronongan
In our rapidly transforming world, Computer Studies play a central role in developing every nation’s overall economic, social, cultural, health, defense, political and educational standing. For this reason, the University of Luzon (UL), in its effort to seize this exceptional opportunity, established its own department of computer sciences in 1996.
Through the college’s four (4) academic programs: Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BSCS), Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT), Bachelor of Science in Information Systems (BSIS); and Enhancement Programs for IT skills enhancements, the students are provided with all concentrations and deeper understanding of the role of computer in our daily lives.
The BSCS, which is a four-year course with three (3) terms summer, prepares students about the study of concepts and theories, algorithmic foundations, implementation and application of information and developing computing solutions. It develops future leaders of Information Technology (IT) world to become the best IT professionals and researchers who are also proficient in technological terms, program designs and its boundless innovations.
The BSIT prepares students to be IT professionals and be well versed on application installation and (software) operations, data storage, databases, data retrieval, data transmission, and data manipulation – its development, customization, maintenance and administration. It is a four-year course with three (3) terms summer which basically nurtures future IT experts in making a difference through sharing diverse thinking and expertise in various industries associated with information technology.
To cope with the changing needs of the present and future challenges of business and finance, the UL embraced the BSIS (four-year course with three (3) terms summer) as its replacement for Bachelor of Science in Information Management (BSIM). All programs under this course are in compliance with Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) minimum requirements.
Today, BSIS serves as a training ground for would-be IT professionals whose interest is to become an expert on design and its implementation of information systems for business processes.
Enhancement Programs IT skills enhancements, on the other hand, can be appreciated through its three (3) main programs which aim to educate students with the use of (technical and practical): SAP Business One, an accounting software used by many business firms throughout the world; Android Technology Development, a curriculum that enables the faculty members in teaching new trends in software development using Android operating system; and Modular Object Oriented Development Learning Environment (MOODLE), a web application that is used worldwide for course management system.
Cultivated by such a creative environment, the College of Computer Studies is taking advantage of the incalculable amount of intellectual resources – the key to understanding the complexities of technology and society to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
