Computer science

We help our students to understand the mathematical and scientific underpinnings of computing systems which are embedded in our lives.

Computer science at City

The study of computer science has gained momentum in the last few years as we begin to appreciate the vital role this discipline plays in our lives. At City, co-curricular studies such as the robotics club enhances the students' appreciation of programming, operating systems and application types.

Why study computer science at City?

Computer science at City develops our students’ problem-solving abilities. In our classes, students will identify a problem, work out how to solve it and resolve the issue. We teach the course in its widest context so that the students understand the discipline’s powers and limitations in everyday life.

We are committed to ensuring that students are safe, competent and confident users of hardware, software and methodology. As a department we use the latest technology and collaborate with other departments to facilitate new teaching and learning opportunities throughout the curriculum.
