Programming languages are the building blocks of software in computer science.
Covering the different paradigms of programming, this major focuses on the design of computer languages that can be easily used to create programs.
You will study the craft and science of programming, and graduate with the skills to enable the construction of effective programming languages and reliable software.
Career paths often lead to roles in government departments, consultancy or private sector organisations.
Programming opens doors beyond tech
- Programmers write software that can be used to create websites, build computer networks, help doctors treat patients, or even drive a car.
- Half of all programming roles are in finance, manufacturing, health care, and other sectors outside of the technology industry.
- Coding skills can take you places: Data analytics, scientists, engineers and designers all use coding.
