Computer Science

At the end of the first part of the programme, you will be able to approach large-scale software engineering design in a professional manner. Emphasis is placed on design and management. The main thread is the design of large software systems, starting from the initial problem and proceeding through specification to a finished product. The main programming language used in the course is C. In the second part of the programme you will study a selection of key topics in computer science in depth. Having studied these topics, you will have the necessary background to begin work on your final project. Furthermore, you will be capable of managing all levels of computer systems in your future careers.
