Helping doctors to treat a newborn baby, analysing the huge volume of data from the human genome, tracking jet engines in flight and ensuring that maintenance is planned accordingly, and making online shopping easier and more secure - these are just some of the challenges that computer scientists rise to every day by using their technical analysis, design and programming skills that they learn at University to create better and more intelligent tools.

The department provides additional support for new students. The aim is to familiarise students with the learning environment and materials. There are three main parts: Programming, Mathematics, and professional issues. Students learn with the materials online in their own time. Our staff will support and provide help via email and video-conferencing.
