Course summary

Prepare yourself for the challenges facing today's computer-dominated world through a theoretical and practical understanding of the science behind computers.

Course overview

Throughout our course you will explore how computers work, how computer software is developed, how computers communicate with each other, and the ways in which software manipulates, stores and processes data. You will work effectively in teams, working on diverse projects, which is the most important skill that employers require.

Why study this course with us?

The Computer Science course is based at Thornton Science Park in purpose-built labs, benefitting from the local Engineering and Computing environment provided by the businesses also situated in the Park.

Studying Computer Science will take you from learning practical computing skills in programming, data management, hardware and networking to understanding and developing software solutions for many of the new challenges facing today’s computer-dominated world, such as safe online shopping, computer graphics, mobile app development and artificial intelligence.

The Department is home to the Informatics Centre: a software development team where students are employed to work on commercial projects.

Teaching methods

To make best use of available time, theory is sometimes disseminated using group lectures; however, the majority of your time will be spent in computer laboratories. Small group discussions, tutorials, and student-led seminars also feature.

Assessment

Assessment involves a combination of assignments, group and individual project work, in-class tests, and examinations, varying in balance from module to module. Our modules have been designed to incorporate assessment of key and subject-related skills.

Job prospects

Our graduates enter a range of roles, both locally and further afield. Typical roles for students completing the programme might include software developer, web developer, network engineer and database administrator among many others. A number of our students have entered graduate schemes at multinational companies.
