Education

Scottish Computing graduates are found world-wide, from start-up companies to global corporations; from school classrooms to specialist research labs. Scottish Universities were also amongst the first in the world to provide Undergraduate and Postgraduate course in Computing, and today, offer world class Computing education that fully spans the discipline.

SICSA Education

In line with this wold class reputation, the SICSA Education Group focuses on enhancing collaboration across the core activities of undergraduate and postgraduate provision; representing common interests to government, to employer, professional and practitioner organisations; and to the wider education sectors. These include resourcing for University Computing programmes, secondary school qualifications, the transition from school to University, and graduate skills.
