Problem solving through the use of technology = life-changing
There is hardly a sphere of human activity that doesn’t depend on technology to make it run efficiently. Ambitious undergraduates increasingly opt for computer science because of its potential for making an impact and changing lives.
Computer science is a fast-growing field offering a wide array of career options to students, from scientific inquiry and technical excellence to entrepreneurial and business ventures (and AUBG Computer Science graduates have themselves founded successful technology enterprises both in Bulgaria and abroad).
The AUBG Computer Science program is focused on helping students gain the necessary skills to be productive leaders in the computing and related industries. As such, our graduates are expected to be highly competent, well-qualified computer professionals, having a broad training in software development, as well as being well prepared for graduate study.
Our program works in close cooperation with the computing industry, as well as with other universities and alumni, to provide a modern and challenging curriculum. Students have many interest clubs, hosting workshops, competitions and industry events. The BA in Computer Science and Information Systems is offered together with the Business Department, while the Master of Science in Software Engineering and an Honors track in Computer Science & Information Systems is another route. Students majoring in other departments can choose minors from over 30 courses within the Computer Science department.
Some of our graduates have gone on and successfully completed postgraduate degree programs in prestigious universities in the USA and Europe such as Stanford University, MIT and Johns Hopkins University in the USA, and Oxford University and University College, London in the UK. Others have joined international companies such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and Accenture. Still others have established their own successful software development companies such as Telerik, Melon, EastiSoft, MammothDB and Transmetrics.
Going to AUBG puts you in “the network” and acts as a solid platform for entrepreneurs who have inspirations and aspirations to start new companies.
