Program Description

Computing is a key enabler of any modern knowledge based economy as it opens new channels and means of acquiring knowledge and information exchange in various sectors of an economy. In Malawi, there is a need for skilled human resource that can create advanced computing artefacts for propelling a knowledge based economy. The MSc in Computer Science programme aims at producing locally, computer scientists that have mastered advanced practical principles of computer science and its sub-branches to positively contribute to the creation of tools for a vibrant knowledge based economy in Malawi and beyond. This two-year program is by research, but students will take two pre-requisite courses and participate in seminars as they work on their dissertations. The students will conduct a research project in Computer Science and submit a Dissertation.
