Course summary

Computer Science is the way in which we can transform the way we will live in the future. It will shape the technology that people will interact with on a daily basis. In the future, virtually all of the ways we communicate, interact, travel and do business will have been improved by computer science. The world will need computer scientists. It is particularly concerned with the specification, design, construction and use of computer systems. It embraces subject areas such as software engineering, hardware architecture and design, information systems, communications, graphics, simulation and modelling, artificial intelligence and human-computer interaction. Computer systems are often highly complex in nature and must be reliable in operation, and our Computer Science degree programmes provide knowledge and expertise in many of the concepts and approaches which are required to design and maintain such systems.
