Welcome to the Department of Computing

Computers are the most significant and exciting technological innovations of the last hundred years. In the future, they will play an even more considerable role in medicine, the sciences, industry, communication and the arts. It's safe to say that the science of Computing will remain a vitally important part of modern civilisation and will be responsible for many of the most important changes in the world in which we live.
