The goal of Daystar University is to train students to become servant-leaders in Kenya and throughout Africa and other parts of the world. As such the students need to be creative and innovative thinkers who will lead in the development of new technologies and systems in whatever area they work, creating jobs and computer solutions to societies’ problems.
The use of computers in business, industry and service organizations has completely changed the way we work and live. Computers affect almost every area of life. Computer technology is changing at a rapid pace. Those working in this area must have the critical thinking skills needed to not only adapt or react to the changes but to creatively participate in the changes to ensure that progress is made in the proper direction.
Students will be encouraged to relate their Christian faith to their work as computer scientists. This may express itself in a variety of ways such as: in the nature of their work, level of commitment to employer and employee and to society through their ethical and moral conviction. Every system they build should be motivated by the desire to reflect the creativity of God and for the glory of His kingdom.
In the liberal art tradition, the students will be expected to study in a number of areas such as Bible, literature and language, history, music or art and communication to provide a broad-based education. As professional leaders the graduates will need to effectively communicate their ideas both orally and the written word. In addition to teaching specific skills, a significant goal of the program will be to teach the students to think critically, broadly and conceptually.
Applicants must fulfil entry requirements that apply to the admission of all Daystar undergraduate students as stated in the current Daystar University Catalogue. They must have a C+ or better overall average on the KCSE examination or equivalent.

Students may also enter the ACS major from the Daystar University Pre-university program if their grades in mathematics, physical science and basic computer knowledge are B or better.
For students coming from outside Kenya the equivalent percentages will be used.
