Published on

A minimalist presentation I gave in FCIS in 2006 about CS department. Some of the information is now out of date! I think it should be updated for nowadays :)

Computer science department - a four page presentation

  1. 1. Computer ScienceDepartment A four page presentation 
  2. 2. CS is all about… Improving the software tools we all use  Smarter applications that understand the user’s language  Better methods for data and knowledge retrieval  More intuitive human computer interaction (graphics, voice, vision, motion…)  Faster, richer and more secure operating systems  Better, more powerful software engineering tools and programming languages  And more!
  3. 3. CS Subjects Mathematical foundations  Theory of Computation, Modeling and Simulation, Neural networks Tools for diverse types of applications  Compilers, Image processing, Networking Tools for better infrastructure  Parallel and Distributed computing, Security The optional course
  4. 4. Past CS Projects Intelligent voice controlled house Arabic Handwriting Recognition Facial expression analysis Eye tracking based input Peer to Peer file sharing Antivirus Compiler Construction toolkit Logic# What’s next?
  5. 5. Future and Community Lots of research areas.  See research departments of Microsoft, IBM, Sun, Google and others  Try a quick search for “computer science” or “computer science department” Availability of Jobs  Sakhr, RDI, Imaginet & others heavily use Image processing, character recognition & natural language techniques  ITWorx, Ractors and others focus on software engineering, networking and security
