A computing degree gives you the opportunity to learn how modern computer and communication systems function, and how they can be used and adapted to build the next generation of computing applications.

It’s a creative and wide-ranging subject that focuses on using sound underlying principles and logical thinking to design and build systems that really work.

Our graduates do not just have the essential core skills, but have also learnt how to adapt to technological change, with its challenges and opportunities. Part of how we ensure this is by liaising with industry, from cutting edge start-ups to multinational household names. The result is that Imperial’s computing graduates are some of the most sought-after worldwide and amongst the top five graduate earners in the UK, according to The Sunday Times' 2014 league of graduate salaries.

The computing facilities in the Department are among the best in the UK. A rolling programme of equipment and software upgrades, including a renewal of one quarter of the 200 PC's in our labs every year, ensures that our facilities are both extensive and up to date.
