    He has *good knowledge in computer language and good skills in using different computer systems to **finish his tasks thoroughly.

    Firstly, with two changes * and **, your above sentence can be improved, keeping its original structure.

    * is changed to 'a good knowledge of computer language' -- 'of' is a better preposition to use.

    ** is changed to 'complete' -- this gives a better meaning as you may finish a job and not complete it.

    Your sentence becomes :

    He has a good knowledge of computer language and good skills in using different computer systems to complete his tasks thoroughly.

    The structure of the sentence can be changed further to give it a even better meaning, like this:

    Having a good knowledge of computer language and good skills in using different computer systems, he always completes his tasks thoroughly.

    Typing error above:

    'The structure of the sentence can be changed further to give it a even better ...'

    should be

    'The structure of the sentence can be changed further to give it an even better ...'.
