In the past few decades, advances in information technology (IT) have driven revolutionary changes in the ways we work, learn, and communicate. These advances have resulted in computer science education becoming part our educational system. As the use of information technology grows in the 21st century in developed and developing countries, computer science education is vital in the educational system in African countries. Africa University has the potential and the resources to become one of the leading universities on the continent with a strong computer science program. Upon assessing the infrastructure, space and lab equipment, it is clear that Africa University has adequate resources to start a degree program in computer science. The existing infrastructure and resources, compared to those of other institutions, currently offering a degree program in computer science in Zimbabwe, puts Africa University in a far better position to introduce computer science in its curriculum. The Bachelor of Science degree program in Computer Science at Africa University is designed to produce computer-fluent professionals, up-to-date problem solvers equipped with experience in the use of real world industry standard development tools, who can write clearly, communicate efficiently, speak clearly in public, and function well in a team environment
