Computer science deals with the scientific and mathematical analysis of computer systems, focussing on their development, dependability and efficiency. The field covers areas starting from pragmatic and practical aspects of software engineering and programming to the analysis of these systems to assess their correctness and efficiency, to more theoretical issues such as analysis of the mathematical limits of computation.

Important areas covered by the Department of Computer Science in the degree programmes offered by the Faculty of ICT include:

  • Programming languages
  • Operating Systems
  • Testing and Verification
  • Security
  • Concurrency and Distributed computing
  • High-performance computing
  • Computer graphics
  • Mathematical foundations of computation
