Overview

The central core of Computing course from Imperial College London has been designed to give you an overview of computing, an understanding of the basic concepts and principles, the ability to appreciate and to adapt to changes in technology, and practical experience in applied computing.

All of the Computing courses follow broadly the same structure for the first two years. Core  Intelligent Behaviour Understanding Groupmodules give you an understanding of the basic concepts and principles of computing. We also provide a solid background in discrete mathematics (logic, sets, relations and grammars), which is the basic mathematics of computing, and classical mathematics and statistics relevant to applications engineering and management.

You will attend laboratory and problem-solving classes, as well as completing project and design work throughout the course.

As the degree progresses you will study advanced techniques and choose from a wide range of optional modules, as well as completing a substantial individual project on a subject of your choice.
