Essential Computer Science for Global LeadersⅠ to begin on June 4, 2014

Prof. Bashar  The global leaders who make innovation happen should have basic knowledge of associated field (especially physics, mathematics and information science) enough to find new programs and solve them, in addition to high degree of professionalism. “Minor Course of Science and Technology for Global Leaders” have a coursework to enhance basic knowledge (Innovation Creation Fundamental Courses).
  “Essential Computer Science for Global Leaders I” will be offered. This is a compulsory lecture for students who are in “Minor Course of Science and Technology for Global Leaders”. But all master’s & doctoral students can take it if you have interest. The lecture will be conducted in English.

Lecture Abstract

  Computer science is an emerging discipline in the current epoch of human history. Along with electronics, it drives the information revolution following industrial and agricultural revolutions. In the recent years, it has become an indispensable discipline, playing active roles in almost all social sectors: medical, business, laws, social sciences, sciences and humanities. Future progress and the ultimate shape of this planet will largely depend on how the next generation global leaders are going to be equipped with essential knowledge on computer science. Social networks, entertainment world, scientific researches, and industrial automation involve using a large volume of multimedia data (image, audio, and textual), which needs to be effectively handled by using computer science techniques. In this course (Essential Computer Science for Global Leaders, ECS-1), light will be shed on some of the fundamental concepts of computer science: data storage, data manipulation, operating systems, algorithms, programming languages, networking and the internet. In fact, data storage, data manipulation, algorithms and their representations (programs) construct the backbone of computer science. Operating systems control the overall operation of a computer, while networking and internet connect the entire world and play important roles in forming information-centric balanced society. Although computer science graduates have some knowledge in the above fields, future leaders from other disciplines need to be prepared to face complex challenges ahead. Attention will therefore be given to simplify above concepts using keywords and relevant examples. Besides essential foundations, the recent trends will also be discussed in order to understand the current expansion of this discipline.
