The Computer Science stream focuses on the knowledge required to build operating systems and design new programming languages. Computer Science professionals design the computing technology that we all use rather than customised software for specific clients. The stream covers in depth software design and algorithm analysis as well as the aspects of artificial intelligence, computer communications, programming language design, databases and computer graphics. The stream will prepare students for the areas of Information and Communication Technologies stated to be most in demand for the positions considered to be the most difficult to fill.
