    Hey everyone,

    I haven't found too many people studying Computing/Computer Science, so thought I'd start a thread to try and find some more

    I'm studying Computing, and hoping to change to Computer Science after the first year. If anyone is doing any related course, feel free to post here

    Cheers

    I'm starting a Masters in Computer Engineering . I looked into doing a Computer Science course myself last year, but while i really enjoy all aspects of computing such as gaming, programming etc. I really enjoy the topics covered by the Comp Eng course.

    Hope you enjoy your course, i'm sure there's a few topics that cross over between the computing degrees, quite common in the first year of most degrees i'm told

    Hi I am gonna be doing the same course as you guys. Anyone going to any of their Open Days? 14th is fully booked (I guess?) unfortunately, So.. I would have to miss a day at college to go on the 18th.

    Anyone else is going to or have been to their previous open days? If you have, how was it?

    Is there anything specifically in terms of maths you would recommend going over?

    Really, just making sure you're good with algebra will be enough, maybe look into binary also. Other than that you should be good with little to no prior knowledge.

    adding to what achlys said, Learn proof by induction too if you already haven't (its in FP1 maths module)

    Just out of wonder how are you final years finding your options after the course finishes to be panning out ?
