A few problem professors and recorded lectures were very much still in their infancy at the time, but in general it was a very enjoyable course and as well managed from UNEs side of things.

Student review
Course that I completed was great. Broad view of computer science that allows you to understand the fundamentals of all computer systems. Lecturers were often generous with their time. Classes were small so easy to ask questions. The course has changes since I completed and I believe a lot of the lectures have left so the above may not apply any more
