Overview

Have you ever wondered about how cyber security and cryptography work, how Google ranks the results of a webpage search, how 3D computer graphics scenes are rendered, how robots can learn to walk or computers learn to play chess, how sports leagues are constructed, or how predictions or insights can be made from Big Data?

This course brings together fundamental skills in mathematics, modelling, algorithms, programming, logic, computational thinking, machine learning, and data science, to tackle questions like these. We focus on the mathematics relevant to practical modelling, deeper understanding of algorithms in computer science, and the computational thinking of data science.

Launching in September 2020
