“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
In a rapidly changing digital world, we need innovative creators and autonomous users of IT. Computing, which covers every kind of digital technology that we utilise to create, store, communicate, exchange and use information, is a discipline that offers rewarding and challenging possibilities for a wide range of people regardless of their range of interests.
Computing requires and develops capability in solving deep, multidimensional problems requiring imagination, resilience and sensitivity to a variety of concerns. Computational, analytical and critical thinking (along with creativity and the ability to problem solve) are at the heart of this. Built on an understanding of universal programming languages and solution focused strategies, Computer Science allows for future careers across the globe in a variety of business, scientific and social contexts.
Advances in Computer Science accelerate the pace of discovery in nearly all other fields. Having strong links with Maths, Science and Technology subjects, Computer Science is part of a well rounded curriculum. Valuable transferable skills ensure a solid grounding for future learning and to cope with the challenges of innovation in the 21st century.
