About

The Informatics - LFCS - Theory and Foundations of Computer Science, Databases, Software and Systems Modelling programme offered by The University of Edinburgh to lead the way in the development of mathematical models, algorithms, theories and tools that probe the possibilities of computation and communication.

Overview

The Informatics - LFCS - Theory and Foundations of Computer Science, Databases, Software and Systems Modelling programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is aimed at establishing deep understanding of computation in its many forms. Using advanced mathematical principles, we create theories and software tools allowing fundamental capabilities of computation to be explored, as well as designing languages that can be used to construct safe and effective programs.

Career opportunities:

Our graduates are in high demand for postdoctoral academic roles. In addition, the skills you will graduate with can be applied to roles in industry, particularly finance, software development and consultancy.
