Each academic department has a set of advisors who coordinates the procedures of their respective departments, represent their department on the various needed committees, namely the one concerned with learner petitions. Divisional advisors advise all undergraduate Computer science learners and are also available to help those learners with their special problems.


Admission to AUE’s School of Information and Computer Science is regular, the criteria for admission are subject to change as enrollment demands vary.

Startup Admission

Startup admission to the School of Information and Computer Science generally takes place upon entry as a first-year learner. The academic credentials required will vary during each admission cycle and are determined by the Office of Admission. The process is straightforward and comprehensive and considers many variables to establish the context of a learner’s achievements and demonstrated potential to be successful in the rigorous curriculum.

Transfer Admission

Learners who may be transferring from other institutions may pursue admission through a non-competitive process. Learners must meet the following admission requirements:

Current AUE learners: To be admitted into the School of Information and Computer Science from another AUE school or program, a learner must have at least 30 graded credit hours.

Transfer learners from another college or university: To be admitted into the School of Information and Computer Science from another educational institution, a learner must have earned at least 30 graded credit hours, have an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher. Transferred courses will be limited only to those with grades of 70 and above. Maximum transferred credits will be restricted to 50 % of the overall program requirements. Transfers will require the approval of the academic council of the university.

Accelerations of Studies

Learners may accelerate their programs by registering for more loads than the average 15 hours per semester needed to complete the program in eight semesters (6 regular+2 summer modules). Registrations of up to 19 credits hours are permitted in a regular semester or eight hours in a five- or six-week summer term. Course loads exceeding these limitations require permission from the Students’ Affairs and the Registrar. Requests are normally considered only if the learner earned more than a 3.00-grade point average or is a senior who is graduating...

Programs of Study

The School of Information and Computer Science offers the following Degree levels:

* Undergraduate

* Graduate

* Continuous Learning Programs

The School of Information and Computer Science offers Bachelor Degrees in the following programs and concentrations: Bachelor's Degrees of Computer Science with one of the following emphases: Computer science, Gaming, and Cybersecurity. Learners must successfully complete a 99 Credit hours ( 3 – 5 years ) program – Typically designed for an optimum time of 3 years.

The concentrations are also offered for the Degrees of Masters (MA) in the same emphases. Learners must successfully complete 39 credits hours (2- 4 years) program- Typically designed for an optimum time of 2 years.

The School of Information and Computer Science offers also Minors to its Learners and other AUE schools. The learners must complete successfully all the minors requirements before graduating from their majors. Other Non- Information and Computer Science programs learners can follow a computer science minor provided that the courses Prerequisites and Corequisites criteria are met, with the recommendations of their advisors.

Graduation Requirements

In the Bachelor of Information and Computer Science programs, learners must successfully complete a minimum of 99 credit hours, as indicated below:

1. 27 credit hours of General University Required courses with a minimum GPA of 2.0.

2. 48 credit hours of Core Foundation with a minimum GPA of 2.0

3. 15 credit hours of Major and Emphasis with a minimum of 2.00 in both the Major GPA and the Cumulative GPA.

4. 9 credit hours of Major electives chosen from a predesigned program emphasis elective list.

In the Master's Degree of Computer Science programs, learners holding a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science-related majors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and above are accepted. Non- Computer Science learners with a Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher can sign for an MBA – after a positive opinion from the Academic Committee and might be required to pass remedial courses with a minimum GPA of 2.5. An MA learner must successfully complete 39 credit hours as indicated below:

1. 21 credit hours of Core Required courses

2. 12 credit hours of Emphasis Required courses

3. 6 credit hours of Major Elective courses

Curriculum Requirements Facts

As precised by the School of Information and Computer Science Study Plan requirements, all programs are constituted from courses as follows:

University General Requirement Courses: All University Programs must fulfill those courses requirements offered externally to the school of Information and computer science. They are designed to constitute an integrative aspect to the university so that a learner signs for the University and not only to an individual Program in a segregated perspective. Those courses are at the core of the liberal education perspective and are designed to equip the student with a 360 ̊ of perspective and competencies needed to breed a multi-intelligence posture.

Computer Capstone Experience: In addition to completing the program's foundation courses and theoretical criteria, all Computer Science learners must complete a Capstone Experience. You should complete the foundation and core first. The Capstones are senior-level experiences that are writing and speaking intensive, provide for multiple skill development, and integrate the coursework you have already completed.

Business Diversity Requirement: You must complete at least one course that provides an understanding of business diversity and general diversity perspectives.

Communication Requirement: All Information and Computer Science programs require at least one Communication art course requirement. Also, each major and emphasis incorporates communication across the curriculum so that writing and speaking skills are important characteristics of each and every program.

Theoretical Courses: Most of the Computer Courses carry a theoretical perspective. This theory usually is validated by following primary references from leading acclaimed edition houses.

Practical Courses: All programs require at least two practical courses requirements. Also, each major and emphasis incorporates practicums across the curriculum so that practical skills are important characteristics of each and every course throughout the program.

Grade Point Average: A minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average in the courses is required for graduation.

Mathematics Requirement: All learners must complete one basic Math course or equivalent-such as applied statistics.

Residency Requirements: AUE programs are essentially full resident-based. All Computer majors must complete at least 50 percent of the Information and Computer Science courses required for their Information and Computer Science degree at one of AUE’s campuses. Transfers are calculated based on these criteria.
