SCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

The School of Science and Technology is one of the three faculties of Dominion University College, which came into full operation five years ago. The school at the moment has one program running: Bachelor of Science (BSc.) in Computer Science with Management. The school has plans of rolling out courses such as BSc. in Project and Operations Management, BSc. Mobile Computing and Applications Development, and BSc. in Information and Communications Technology, come September, 2018 in the 2018/2019 academic year.

Science is important because it teaches an understanding of natural phenomena. Science aims to stimulate our natural curiosity in finding out why things happen in the way they do. It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation to stimulate creative thought.

Technology has important effects on business operations. No matter the size of your enterprise, technology has both tangible and intangible benefits that will help you make money and produce the results your customers demand. Technological infrastructure affects the culture, efficiency and relationships of a business.

The goal of science is the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake while the goal of technology is to create products that solve problems and improve human life. Simply put, technology is the practical application of science.

The faculty members are experts in their respective fields with requisite qualifications (both professional and academic), who deliver quality teaching to our students and prepare them adequately for the job market.
