Computing & IT

Why study Computer Science?

The most important aspect of computer science is problem solving, an essential skill for life. Students study aspects of Computer Science and IT where they will design, develop and analyse software and hardware used to solve problems in a range of contexts. They will also learn how to stay safe online, which is a very important element of emerging technologies.
