Department of Computer Science

Women in Computer Science Day

Oxford University's Computer Science Department and Metaswitch Networks are delighted to welcome female students from year 10 (and 11 if available) (14-16 year olds) and their teachers/parents to a Computer Science Taster Day. The day is designed to raise awareness of what Computer Science is at university level. Delegates will:

- meet women (and men) who work in the Computer Science field — find out how they're changing the world in areas as varied as quantum computing, to protecting individuals from cyber criminals. Learn about game theory, and taking to computers in plain English.

- visit an Oxford college — find out what it's really like to live and study at Oxford.

- find out what Computer Science really is — it's not just ICT and it certainly isn't just for boys and geeks.

- find out what challenges computer science researchers are tackling — visit our Computer Science exhibition area.

- hear what it's really like to work in the computing industry — meet our guest speaker from international software company Metaswitch Networks.
