It’s a fact reinforced by The Sunday Times’ 2017 league table of graduate salaries which reported that the best paid were computer scientists (from Oxford), who achieved a £45,000 median salary just six months after graduation. Many of these graduates were recruited by banks or technology companies such as Google and Amazon.
The increasing demand for graduates is why our new Computer Science course offers students a complete introduction to the computer systems, programs and networks that are key to the rapid transformation and modernisation seen across all aspects of life today.
Computer Science focuses on understanding computer systems and networks at a deep level in order to problem solve and progress learning. After all, computers and the programs they run are among the most complex products ever created by humankind – therefore, Computer Science is based on creating links between theory and practice; answering the challenges posed by the discipline through theorising and implementing solutions.
Six exceptional aspects about our new course:
It’s easy to forget that Computer Science is still in its infancy. ENIAC, considered by most as the world’s first electronic computer, was announced to the public in 1946 – whilst Google only turns 20 in September.
That leaves so many fascinating possibilities for Computer Science in the future. In the years to come, computers will undoubtedly help us to better investigate complex systems like the Earth’s eco-system and the universe itself, as well as the inner-workings of our own bodies. Meanwhile, quantum computers are set to break the limits of human knowledge yet further.
With no prior knowledge of Computer Science or programming required for our course, all that students studying with Varsity will need is a laptop and an enquiring mind. Perhaps the next Zuckerberg will be among them. Or, even better, a successor to Alan Turing (another notable Cambridge alumnus, of course)…
