The Computer Science programme offered by the University of Cambridge is broad and deep – giving skills to create future technology. All aspects of modern computer science are covered, along with the underlying theory and foundations in economics, law, and business. You also develop practical skills, such as programming (in various languages, eg ML, Java, C/C++, Prolog) and hardware systems (eg chip design using Verilog).
The students benefit from the Department’s cutting-edge research and extensive facilities. The purpose-built Department of Computer Science and Technology is packed with the latest technology, advanced lecture theatres, dedicated practical rooms, a well-stocked library, and even a café.
Group projects during the course, where small teams of students deliver a product to an external client, ensure relevant industrial experience. Projects often lead to commercialization, licensing or employment.
The graduates’ knowledge and skills embody principles which will outlast today’s technology, making them highly sought after by industry and commerce alike.
About half of our students go on to work in the computer industry, while a fifth pursue further study and careers in teaching and research. Many graduates have founded companies or gained employment in software, hardware, the games industry, finance, communications, and commerce.
