Computer Science is a subject that touches every facet of modern life. From cancer research, to predicting the weather, Computer Science is fundamental. A degree in Computer Science teaches you practical skills about how to approach the specification, design, construction and use of computer systems, but it also equips you with the information and understanding to tackle emerging problems and opportunities in the world.
Computer Science traditionally covers areas such as software engineering, hardware architecture, information systems, communications and simulation and modelling but it is an ever expanding subject. Recent areas of development include machine learning, human-computer interactions and data analytics.
