Welcome to Computer Science


Welcome from the Head of Department

On behalf of the School of Electrical Engineering & Electronics and Computer Science I am delighted to welcome you as a new student. The school is a community of scholars working across more than a dozen subject areas, and we are sure you will benefit from the breadth and vitality that is possible in a school of this size, with world-class teaching and in-depth specialist expertise available to you.

We will give you all support needed during Welcome Week and later throughout the first semester to make your transition to undergraduate and postgraduate studies as smooth as possible.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to the school in person in September.

Prof Boris Konev
