at our Open Days
Computer Science is a rapidly evolving subject that touches every aspect of our lives. The School of Computing is at the forefront of research in cyber security, data science, programming languages and systems, and computational intelligence.
Our aim is to convey that knowledge clearly and enthusiastically to our students to equip them with the theoretical and practical skills they need to move on to careers. Whether in industry or in academia, we want to enable our graduates to bring about positive change in the world.
We actively encourage our students to gain hands-on experience in computing and support them to go on placements.
We are passionate about our subject and have developed a Year in Computing programme, which gives students of all subjects at Kent the chance to develop computing skills.
We also run hands-on workshops and events on campus for schoolchildren. These include workshops in LEGO® robotics and Greenfoot developing Java programs with animations. Find out more about our work with schools.
