Course summary

Course overview

Computer Science is an exciting and dynamic field, full of open problems and opportunities for creative discovery and invention that touch almost all areas of life. It is about understanding computer systems and networks and how they work from theoretical, mathematical and applied perspectives. Because computers solve problems to serve people, there is also a significant human element to the subject. It's a good choice if you like problem-solving and logic, or if you want to specialise in fields such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Cybersecurity and Forensics.

The course covers a mixture of core concepts and evolving, technology-based subject matter. Not only will you develop the technical, analytical and professional skills that graduate employers are looking for, you will also be able to analyse problems objectively to develop appropriate computational solutions.

Industry projects and summer placements are a key component of this degree and will help you gain valuable experience in the workplace. Our students have completed exciting placements in companies such as:

  • Admiral
  • Airbus
  • CERN
  • GSK
  • Hewlett Packard
  • Lloyds Bank
  • Red Bull Racing

Career prospects

Skilled computer scientists are in extremely high demand. This means the employment prospects for graduates in the computing and ICT industry are very strong. You will be equipped with transferable skills that open doors to careers in many sectors.

In recent years, more than 90% of the School’s graduates were in employment or engaged in further study within six months of graduation.

Recent statistics show that the vast majority of our graduates are following their chosen career paths in roles such as Software Engineer, Web Developer, Computer Programmer, Associate Software Developer, Business Analyst and Systems Development Officer.
