Course summary

About the course

From sending a text to using the cashpoint, we interact with computers every day. Computing helps enhance our quality of life and can be used to meet the challenges that ongoing advances in technology create. This course helps you acquire the knowledge and skills that are invaluable in the computing industry.

In this course, we aim to help you explore a range of topics, such as,

  • Programming
  • Software engineering
  • Computer networking and security
  • Mathematics
  • Mobile computing

We'll look at both the theory and practical side of things to help you develop your abilities. Having knowledge of both makes all the difference when you seek employment in this rapidly expanding industry.

Your tutors will encourage you to identify problems, and then work out how to solve them using software. You might get involved in developing software solutions that use artificial intelligence (AI). Or perhaps you’ll look at how to use computing applications in engineering or scientific experiments to combat environmental problems.

In Year 1 you’ll follow a core computing programme that gets the fundamental skills and knowledge to prepare you for more advanced topics. Then from Year 2 on, you’ll have the chance to take an option module in each year. This enables you to tailor your studies to your specific interests.

During your studies you’ll be taught through a combination of formal lectures, tutorial groups, practical laboratory work and seminars. The course is partly accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS), which means you will have fulfilled some of the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional, Chartered Incorporated Engineer or Registered IT Technician. Our course also gives you the chance to apply your skills in the real-world with an optional one-year placement. Previous students have undertaken placements at companies like IBM, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, HBOS and British Airways.

Your career

Previous graduates from courses in this subject area have gone on to work in a variety of roles such as software engineer, server and storage analyst, senior developer, research software development engineer, systems security engineer and business analyst in organisations including BBC, West Yorkshire Police, Hermes, Microsoft, BT and Amazon UK.**

Additionally, you may gain skills that are transferable to other industries and may be able to pursue any career that requires a good honours degree. You could go on to further study and the University has many options available for postgraduate study (including postgraduate teacher training) and research which may interest you.
