About Our Course of Studies
Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Computer Science combine a solid core of computer science courses with the ability to gain real depth in another area through a required minor in a second subject. In addition, there are numerous choices in the curriculum for science and humanities courses. As computing is a discipline with strong links to many fields, this provides students with unparalleled flexibility to pursue allied (or non-allied) interests.
