This university-level training in computer science trains future specialists capable of creating and elaborating complex and efficient computing systems that satisfy the numerous and ever-increasing needs in our society. It thus trains "software creators" rather than pure programmers. More specifically, the bachelor's programme in computer science aims at the acquisition of the following technical competences and skills :
Computer science comprises the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to develop and understand complex software systems. In addition to this technical and more applied knowledge, to become a professional computer scientist, the student has to develop some extra skills such as a creative ability and critical mindset. These studies also train students to become responsible young professionals, capable of apprehending the complex socio-economic world into which computing science is embedded, and to take decisions which are both technically sound and humanly responsible.
