Computer science is concerned with understanding, designing, implementing and using computing systems, ranging in scale and complexity from the tiny components of a single processor to the globe-spanning internet. The core concepts of computing have their roots in mathematics and logic, such as what it means to compute, and what Problems can or cannot be computed. It also concerns the practical techniques of programming computers to solve real and difficult problems, and there are many links to other subjects, from psychology (how humans interact with computers, how computers can be given human capabilities) to electronics (how to exploit digital circuitry and peak efficiency, the possibilities for parallel and quantum computing). This intellectually challenging subject underpins the core technologies of the 21st century, and can be a route to many different career paths.
Our graduates have excellent career prospects. The vast majority make direct vocational use of their qualification in the IT industry. Increasingly however, our graduates also find work in the trades, industries and professions that rely heavily on computing systems, including media, communications, finance, energy and medicine.
