Welcome to
the Computer Science Department!

The Computing curriculum consists of three elements:

  • Computer science – understanding how computers work and how to program them to do what we need
  • Information technology – using computers and software to create beautiful digital artifacts
  • Digital literacy – learning how to be sensible and responsible users of digital technology
  • Through challenging and engaging projects, students develop the fundamental computational thinking skills of abstraction, decomposition, algorithmic thinking, generalisation, and evaluation.
