Computation underpins our 'daily digital life': Students taking this course will receive a foundational background in computational problem-solving. On the theoretical side this includes an introduction to logic, along with the scientific and engineering methodologies, design principles, and a grounding in the theories and models of computation. In parallel practical skills of problem structuring, solution design, algorithm writing, structured programming, and data representation within a computational environment will be acquired. Theoretical and practical lessons are contextualised in the modern IT environment with introductions to core computer science topics such as operating systems, networks, simulation, and programming languages. Students will design and implement a number of solutions to computational problems - bringing together the theory, milieu, and practical skills acquired in the course.
