Computer Science

Back to Subjects
In Computer Science we look at developing our computational thinking through practical experience of solving problems through the creation of Python based computer programs. With computers used so widely now in all aspects of business, industry, education, and leisure Computer Science looks at how we can design algorithms, test and write programs for these different areas. This course does not focus on the Microsoft package that you use in Information and Communication Technology (ICT). There is no use of PowerPoint or Excel here. Computer Science uses Visual Studio to code Python solutions using students problem solving skills. During the two years’ worth of study you will learn a new language and its rules along with the ability of understanding how a computer system works including the knowledge of hardware.
