Computer Science

Computer Science

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.

Studying for a Computer Science degree at Queen’s will assist you in developing the core skills and employment-related experiences that are valued by employers, professional organisations and academic institutions. Graduates from this degree at Queen’s are well regarded by employers (local, national and international).
