Course Summary

This course is broad and deep - giving skills to create future technology. All aspects of modern computer science are covered, along with the underlying theory and foundations in economics, law and business. You also develop practical skills, such as programming (in various languages, e.g. ML, Java, C/C++, Prolog) and hardware systems (e.g. chip design using Verilog). Assessment is by three-hour examinations taken in the final term each year. Our graduates' knowledge and skills embody principles which will outlast today's technology, making them highly sought after by industry and commerce alike. For example, companies at our annual recruitment fair collectively seek to recruit more than our entire annual number of graduates. About half of our students go on to work in the computer industry, while a fifth pursues further study and careers in teaching and research. Many graduates have founded successful companies while others have easily found employment in software, hardware, the games industry, finance, communications and commerce.
