What will you learn

Computing Science is about learning to program, right? Yes, but that is only a small part of the programme. As a computer scientist you learn how software works, how information is represented as digital data and the underlying mathematical and logical principles. You will study how all this is implemented in hardware like computers and digital networks and how to apply cyber security to protect IT systems.

Computer scientists can work in a broad array of fields. Companies are dying to take on students with a background in computing science. Most students often find a job before graduating from the programme. It's up to you to decide what you want to specialise in.
