Introduction to Computer Science

The UK has been instrumental in the development of computing and continues to deliver ground-breaking innovations in the 21st century. UK universities are also at the forefront of computer science, with many departments conducting research for the world's top companies - developing software to save a persons life, creating a whole new world through a keyboard and mouse, or programming a robot to complete a task - the opportunities are endless, and at a UK university you are guaranteed excellent teaching at schools which consistently rank in the top 100 universities in the world.

New tools, programs and development kits can appear on a constant basis, and as such it is a great time to study Computer Science in an ever changing technological landscape.
