Computer Science and Software Engineering

Computer Science and Software Engineering are about designing computer systems to help people do their work efficiently and effectively.

When people think of Computer Science and Software Engineering they often simply think of programming, but there are many more aspects to it including communication and networks, security, graphics, software engineering methodologies, web computing, information systems, operating systems, performance evaluation, computer languages and artificial intelligence.

The Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) at the University of Canterbury has a strong international reputation and courses that are reviewed regularly against international standards. Our graduates are in strong demand. Staff are active researchers, with collectively one of the best records of research publications in the Pacific region.
