Course summary

Course summary

Computer Science incorporates a number of specialist areas underpinning the digital technologies we use every day. Our course is taught by leading researchers who are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in this rapidly changing field to ensure you’re up to date with the latest developments.

You’ll learn the main areas of the discipline, including Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Information Security and Data Analytics, as well as Computer Systems, Computer Architecture and Data Structures.

In addition to the technical knowledge you’ll need to pursue a career in this field, you’ll learn about the impact of technology on individuals, organisations and society. With a work-based learning module embedded within the course, you’ll also have the chance to develop your skills in the workplace and enhance your CV.

What you'll learn

Throughout the course you’ll be encouraged to apply your skills to a range of practical problems. In your first year, you’ll gain a solid grounding in computer science fundamentals, including information systems modelling and design, software development, networks, web technologies and mathematics tailored to computing.

In your second year you’ll learn about databases, operating systems and data structures, and will complete a 70 hour work placement.

For your final year you’ll have the chance to specialise in areas such as mobile application development, network security, distributed systems and artificial intelligence.

You’ll be encouraged and supported to find work experience to enhance your practical skills, and we’ll help you to find a work placement if you choose to work for a year in the industry during your course.

Career

Think of almost any business sector that exists and then imagine it without computer systems. Tough, isn’t it? That’s because industries as diverse as agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing and financial services all rely on computers and software to function effectively.

As a graduate from the University of East London, you'll have a solid understanding of the main disciplines that fall under the computer science banner. With a BCS accredited degree (subject to confirmation) and our status as a Microsoft IT and CompTIA Academy your degree will be respected within the IT sector and further afield.

A computer science degree is the perfect springboard for a career in almost any sector, in addition to the tech and digital industries.

The kinds of role you could go into include:

• Information Security
• Software Design
• Data Analytics
• Software Engineering
• Network, System or Database Administration
• Systems Architecture
• Education
• Technical Sales

This qualification also lends itself to postgraduate study and research. Or, if you have an entrepreneurial impulse, we can support you with that too and give you help and advice on launching your own start-up.
