  • Prepare for a successful career in the software industry in roles such as software engineer, project manager, technical architect or chief technology officer
  • Choose to spend an optional year in industry on placement, gaining hands-on experience which will set you apart in the graduate job market
  • Harness cutting-edge software development tools in our industry-standard laboratories
  • Learn from experienced computer scientists who have strong industry links
  • Play a part in fascinating projects such as the ALICE experiment, on which we are working in partnership with leading organisations at CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research.

Software is everywhere – running everything from our desktop computers and mobile phones to home appliances, game consoles, cars, planes and industrial machinery. This degree will help you become a skilled computer programmer, adept at developing software and fully aware of the tools and methodologies that underpin software.

Industrial placement

If you opt for a placement in your third year, you will have the benefit of working alongside industry professionals and seeing how the knowledge and skills you have gained so far are put into practice. This experience will give you a distinct edge when you are applying for jobs after you graduate.
