Iteam – Computer Department


The Department of Computer Science (DCS), established in the year 2017 as the sixth department of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, mainly contributes to the B.Sc. degree programme by offering Computer Science as one of the disciplines. As an extension to the services rendered by DCS for the students as well as the University, a society named as iTeam was established in January 2020. This is a significant decision of DCS to bring Computer Science students and the department to a glaring place in the university.

The iTeam is responsible for organizing social and academic events to fulfill its objectives:   

(a)  To create an interest in Computer Science and Information Technology among students and the University community at large.

(b)  To improve relationships and promote social activities among the staff members of the Computer Science Department, OUSL.

(c)  To cultivate student-staff relationships to help gain maximum use of the facilities at OUSL.

(d)  To facilitate university-industry interaction.

The iTeam provides mainly Computer Science and Information Technology related services to the university, its students, and the society at large by enhancing the technical competency under the guidance of its academic & technical staff. It also takes part in social activities by applying knowledge and skills to benefit others or serve the public for the betterment of society.
