I have heard the work at Imperial Coll, Lon is really big and that there are lots of lectures/classes when you study there. How many hours of tutorials/lectures are there per week for Computer Science, or how many lectures/tutorials are there per week?

Thanks for da info

In particular this link : http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/~im/TIMTAB/term2/class/c1.html

Damn that is pretty keen, looking up the timetable and all, what's wrong with shoving a course down on the ucas form, seeing what offers you get and sticking it out ! I'm starting to get scared now, I'm going there this year for comp sci also..

But if you only get one afternoon free, then you could only realistically fit in one club(that you were really comitted too of course) no?

So do you do much C++ in Comp Sci @ Imperial ? I would love to learn about threading etc, as at the moment I have to do everything without it cause i'm too inexperienced . I'm writing an OpenGl app. ( basically aquires data from a piece of hardware and plots the results / does signal processing on them ).. but I suspect the guts of it are rather nasty - hopefully after comp sci. I will be more confident about my programming ability :confused:

no, we dont do C++. lots of academic staffs here dislike C++.

however, you have to teach yourself C++, cos you will need it later on for the course). the staffs are quite confident that you are capable to learn it by yourself cos they teach you Java & C.

if you enjoy programming, then Imperial will satisfy you :-

in the first year, we do Haskell (declarative, functional programming) and Kenya (procedural "Java") in the first term; we do Postgre-SQL, OO Java and Assembly plus (a little bit in C and OpenGL) in the second term; in the third term, we do Prolog (yeah, my love -> declarative, logical programming).

in addition, we have a group project in the third term -- to create some webpages. in order to finish it you have to teach yourself a number of web design lauguages/scripts -- e.g. HTML+CSS, Javascript. or you may want to learn Perl, XML and so on, provided you have enough spare time.

in the second year, we will learn a few more languages..e.g. Core C for the MINIX practical coursework!

i am sure after the comp sci. course at Imperial you will become a highly skilled programmer, even though you know nothing about computing before.

By the way if you hadn't realised it by now, Jeff (and Peter) are the two academic powerhouses in our year!

Hence he did the non-compulsory "little bit in C and OpenGL".

LOL, if you're middle of the class, then I'm the king of France! Talk about modesty.

Yeah I was rather disappointed when I learned they were going to teach Java instead of C++. What's up with that anyway?
Have you guys made up your mind on specializations (graphics, AI, Software Engineering...etc) ?
I love the programming, but I'm starting to get scared about the math. Is it hard?

(Hello btw) I'm maths and compsci, but not looking forward to the Java. C++ is so much better I'd much rather do that!! I've taught myself some C++, so I'd be slightly ahead too!

Oh well... hopefully they'll overlap or something
