About the Department

At Imperial, we place special emphasis on the fundamental principles underlying computing and on understanding the engineering considerations involved in computing system design, implementation and usage.

The result is that our graduates do not just develop essential core computing skills, they also learn how to adapt to the challenges and opportunities of technological change.

This is supported by strong industry links across the Department leading to industry-led research projects, guest talks and lectures, industrial placements and sponsorship of prizes.

A rolling programme of equipment and software upgrades also keeps our computing facilities at the cutting edge.
