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.
