The Cambridge Computer Laboratory was the first computer science department in the world and the first to offer a computer science degree. The Computer Science course brings together disciplines including mathematics, engineering, the natural sciences, psychology and linguistics. All aspects of modern computer science are covered, along with the underlying theory and foundations in economics, law and business. You also develop practical skills in areas such as programming and hardware systems. Full details of the structure and content of the course can be found on the University website.
