Cambridge's computer science course is challenging, exciting, inspiring, and highly marketable. The course attracts the best students from the UK and beyond. It provides a broad and deep education into all aspects of computer science. It is taught by some of the world's experts in the field.
The course moves quickly from the fundamentals of the subject in first year, through the core material in second year, to advanced topics in the third year, some of which are only covered in Masters degrees elsewhere. We expect a lot from our students but we know that they are capable. Our graduates are highly sought after by industry.
Emmanuel has excellent provision for computer scientists. All rooms are wired for network connections and there is an excellent suite of general purpose computers. The College is conveniently located for all of the first year lectures.
