About this major

A major in Computer Science gives you the knowledge and skills needed to innovate in information technology, and create fundamentally new IT solutions to today's challenges. Covering the key concepts of computation, you will learn the principles and techniques needed to solve tasks efficiently with computation, and to express those solutions in software. Discover how computation can be modeled and how to reason about the limits of what computation can achieve.

In your third year, you will complete a Computer Science Project which gives you the opportunity to integrate and apply the knowledge and skills acquired in previous units in the context of designing and building computing solutions for a diverse application problem. Working in a group for an external client and with academic supervision, students carry out the full range of activities including requirements capture, analysis and design, coding, testing and documentation. This exciting unit allows you to use agile software methodology and make use of professional tools for the management of this project.
