The Department of computer Science/Computer Unit conducts a Computer Literacy Course (CLC) for all the science students who do not follow Computer Science as a subject. This optional course is quite popular among the students. The recently revised course is offered to the students in their first academic year and it lasts for one year.


A selected  number  of students are given the  opportunity to continue  it in to the  second year.   The  two-year course is named as the Certificate  Course of Information Technology (ICT2b13  (CCIT)). At the end of the ICT2b13 (CCIT), certificates  are issued to the students who successfully complete  the course.


Note: According to the Examination Criteria students who do not follow computer science as one of the subjects for their degree programme must pass the examination of Computer Literacy Course in order to release the final results of the B.Sc. Degree.
