Why study Combined Sciences?
Computer science includes theoretical and algorithmic foundations about hardware and software, and their uses for processing information. Computer science draws some of its foundations from mathematics and engineering and therefore incorporates techniques from areas such as queueing theory, probability and statistics, and electronic circuit design. Computer
science also makes heavy use of hypothesis testing and experimentation during the conceptualization, design, measurement, and refinement of new algorithms, information structures, and computer architectures.
Computer Science is applied in offline and online business, education, communication and digital banking. Computers have taken industries and
businesses to a global level. Computer science is a rapid evolving field with relevance in every sector.
At LMI we study the AQA syllabus of GCSE Computer Science over two years with eight topics:
1. Fundamentals of algorithms
3. Fundamentals of data representation
4. Computer systems
5. Fundamentals of computer networks
6. Cyber security
7. Relational databases and structured query language (SQL)
8. Ethical, legal and environmental impacts of digital technology on wider society, including issues of privacy
If a student has good grades at GCSE Computer Science or in their equivalent educational system, and a good command of the English language, they can
start with the AQA A Level Computer Science over 2 years. The subject content covers:
1. Fundamentals of programming
2. Fundamentals of data structures
3. Fundamentals of algorithms
4. Theory of computation
5. Fundamentals of data representation
6. Fundamentals of computer systems
7. Fundamentals of computer organisation and architecture
8. Consequences of uses of computing
9. Fundamentals of communication and networking
10. Fundamentals of databases
11. Big Data
12. Fundamentals of functional programming
13. Systematic approach to problem solving
14. Non-exam assessment – the computing practical project
Both Computer Science courses aim to help students by developing their logical and computational skills, build their confidence and progress in their career.
Students who are looking for an opportunity to generate ideas that solve user- specific problems, design and ideate possible solutions, and execute them, should join LMI.
In LMI College our teachers give the students the tools they need to develop their knowledge, their critical thinking, and their analytical skills.
