Level 3 Computer Science

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms O. Liddle

Year 13 Computer Science is an advanced course, following on from the Year 12 course, offering Level Three achievement standard credits. A significant proportion of the course involves programming, using the C# language, to an advanced object orientated level. Students will continue learning their project management skills as they work on their programming projects. They will also investigate areas of Computer Science and focus on one topic from: computer graphics, complex systems, computer vision, big data, formal languages and network protocols.
