Study Computing Science at King's

Just as other disciplines use instruments to study unseen phenomena, students in the computing science program at King's use computing devices to study aspects of how God structured and organized the universe.

Learn current programming languages (C++, Java, JavaScript, Python, PHP), database design, software engineering, numerical computing, and modelling through lectures and lab work. Develop core skills like critical thinking, problem-solving, and algorithm analysis to give you a competitive edge in the world of computing science.

There is a unique joy in creating new programs and code that run smoothly and effectively. King's computing science program gets hands-on with excellent hardware and software labs. Study animation, game design, image processing and embedded images, web application design, and software engineering; get the breadth of experience you need to pursue your career after graduating.
