Presently, the Faculty offers four-year Bachelor of Science Degree Programmes in Computer Science and Information Technology aimed at producing qualified information and communication professional for government, industry, and private enterprise.  The Bachelor of Science programme requires 146 credit hours divided into 8 semesters of course work, project work, student internship and a management seminar.

In line with our philosophy of innovation, we have introduced summer and evening programs to enable students from Basic, Second Cycle, Tertiary institutions and other interested persons to acquire IT skills. The vision of the chancellor of the university is that any student who graduates from GCUC should have in addition skill and certificate in ICT. This program started in January 2013 and was organized for all level 300 students of the Business School. The program continues this year and it is hoped that the Faculty of Health and Allied Sciences will join the Faculty of Business Studies. Students who graduate after going through the program shall be awarded a certificate in ICT in addition to their degrees to make them more competitive in the job market.
