Math for Computer Science


Program Description

Math for Computer Science


This program is taught in ENGLISH. Anyone who lacks the strong math foundation they need for a career in tech, but is eager to learn has a home in our foundational course. Students acquire all the basic tools they need to continue studies in Computer Science, Data Science or Cyber Security. Graduating MSL means opening the doors to apply for a place at Harbour.Space University and any other top-rate tech university in the world.


If your Math level is not sufficient, you can first join our intensive, one year preparatory Math as a Second Language (MSL) course before starting the math intensive degree studies. After successful completion of MSL students are granted an automatic right to enter all math intensive degrees at Harbour.Space.

Applicants who wish to acquire math skills in order to pursue studies in other elite technical universities at an undergraduate or graduate levels are also invited to apply to MSL.

The foundational course gives students all the essential mathematical knowledge in programming, geometry, algebra, calculus and algorithms they need to develop their skills in technology.
