Computing is an ever-expanding element of the modern world that continues to grow in relevance as technology progresses. It is the foundation of many industries, such as engineering, science, travel, commerce and even the media; meaning that the knowledge gained by its study is widely applicable in the world of employment.

Developing software is a creative activity because it seeks solutions that are elegant as well as functional and re-usable. It is also about being systematic and professional so that others can have confidence that your solution is a strong one that will work consistently and reliably. As computer scientists, we understand people and organisations and work with them, and our courses place a strong emphasis on professional and personal development within the broad context of the business world.
