Hi all,
I'm an italian student applying for 5 scottish universities, and Heriot-Watt is one of these 5. How is CS at this university?

A feedback from someone studying CS there would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Also, it was the first CS degree in Scotland. Coming to Heriot-Watt to study Information Systems was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Is the Information Systems course a good course? I've applied for it and I really want to study at Heriot-Watt

Heriot Watt is a fantastic place to study but I feel occasionally that IS is a bit like the unwanted sibling of CS.

The courses we share with the CS degree are extraordinary as the CS Department is one of the best in the uni. But as you probs know, IS students spend 40% of our time in the School of Management and Languages doing the businessy side of our degree. SML is pretty shoddily run but we've been making a lot of improvements this year and I thing next year's students will have a great experience in both schools.

I still don't think there's an other uni in Scotland that would fit me better than HW.
