Why CS? Why Glasgow?
Computing Science and Software Engineering are young and exciting disciplines which are rapidly evolving. They include, amongst other things, theoretical studies of algorithms, experimental investigations in areas ranging from human-computer interaction to network performance, and practical engineering challenges in designing and implementing efficient, reliable software to meet specifications.
Graduates with degrees in these areas are highly employable and can look forward to well-paid careers designing and building the digital technologies that underpin the global economy and, indeed, every aspect of human activity from healthcare through music to making the natural environment sustainable.
