About this course
We live in a connected world that is driven by technology. The experts behind these networks and the systems behind them are inventing the future, and it is one of endless possibilities. Users take it for granted that information is always available, whenever and wherever they want it, but all this depends on science. And it’s not just about information. Computer Science lies behind the systems that run trains, cars, banks. All this technology throws up some challenges too. What would happen for instance if someone were to hack into the public transport system? How can we safeguard our privacy on the web? E-criminals need to be tackled by e-crimefighters. Networks and Security are two major topics in computer science today. We are constantly making systems safer, more user-friendly, faster and more useful.
