Details Details
  Computers have become a part of everybody’s daily life. In the Department of Computer Science we teach how computer systems work, with a particular focus on software, and we research how computer systems will develop into the future.   Our courses cover a wide spectrum of topics from software to computer hardware, from internal details of operating systems to computer applications, and from software engineering practice to computational theory. We provide excellent facilities for practical work, with most of our modules including a mix of lectures and lab work. Many of our students also spend time working in industry as part of their course.   We endeavour to provide a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere for learning – we provide a programming helpdesk, extensive assistance during practical work – and we are always available outside of lectures to help our students. A new ICT building is currently under construction and will house the Department of Computer Science from the summer of 2015.   Consider taking our degree in Multimedia, Mobile and Web Development if you are interested in: developing expertise in systems-level and applications-level programming concepts through modules in programming, scripting, databases and networking Studying software engineering (design, analysis and testing) where the focus is on large-scale systems modelling and development as well as foundational and theoretical aspects of computer science developing expertise in communicating information effectively with the help of modules in visual communication, usability and cognitive science
