Department of Computer Science

The Department is well equipped for teaching, and is continually upgrading its laboratories to ensure equipment is up-to-date – equipment is never more than three years old, and rarely more than two. Currently, students use three fully networked laboratories: one, running Windows; another running Linux; and a project laboratory, containing specialised equipment. These laboratories support a wide range of software, including the programming languages Java, C# and the .net framework, C, C++, Haskell and Prolog among many; integrated programme development environments such as Visual Studio and Netbeans; the widely-used Microsoft Office package; web access tools; and many special purpose software tools including graphical rendering and image manipulation tools; expert system production tools; concurrent system modelling tools; World Wide Web authoring tools; and databases.


All Computer Science courses will provide you the transferable skills and knowledge to help you take advantage of the excellent employment and career development prospects in an ever growing and changing computing and ICT industry.

90% of Swansea’s Computer Science graduates are in full-time employment or further study within six months of graduating (HESA June 2011).

Student profiles

“One of the main reasons I chose Swansea was because of the excellent reputation of the Computer Science Department which is ranked among the top 25 in the UK. The Lecturers in the Department are excellent, and are equally very accessible to students. Many are actively involved in world class research. Their knowledge is shared with us in lectures. I love Swansea. I have recently completed the MSc and intend to gain further experience in the software industry before pursuing a PhD at Swansea University. “
