About the school
Welcome to the University of Auckland's School of Computer Science, we offer a broad range of courses spanning almost all aspects of Computer Science.
Computers are pervasive and impact on many aspects of our lives, from the enormous social impact of computer games, email, and the web, through booking airline tickets, navigation systems and banking.
Our graduates are well prepared for the challenges of the dynamic and fast growing software industry and are very well received by industry employers.
We expect these systems to work correctly all the time and if they don’t our lives can be seriously impacted. As a result, the need for Computer Science graduates has increased dramatically, leading to a skills shortage across the IT sector.
The University of Auckland ranks first in New Zealand for Computer Science and Information Technology, according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019, and in the top 100 worldwide.
The school has a strong research focus, with more than 50 academic staff actively undertaking research, much of it in collaboration with international researchers and local industry.
This means our degree programmes are leading edge, our graduates are well prepared for the challenges of the dynamic and fast growing software industry and are very well received by industry employers.
We look forward to seeing you in our classes in the near future.
