They're the perfect places to develop practical skills and get experience of working with industry-standard tools, such as Microsoft Imagine Premium and VMware IT Academy. We encourage collaboration, so you’ll also learn through activities with your peers, and lectures and seminars from industry experts.Employability is embedded in the curriculum throughout the course, starting with 12 months access to Pluralsight professional online training courses for programmers, within the Introduction to Programming module. This gives you enhanced opportunities to experience real-world professional training as part of your academic course.Our Computer Science degree gives you the opportunity to specialise in areas such as software development, mobile applications, computer security, cloud computing, network administration and technical support.Some of our optional modules offer you the training needed to apply for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) status after you graduate, boosting your employability with a recognised certification in a specialist area.You can also choose to take a placement year and put your skills into practice at one of the many top technology firms based in Cambridge.Our accredited degree course is ranked in the top 25% in the UK for overall satisfaction (National Student Survey 2020), and will help you stand out to employers in a range of industries, both in the UK and overseas.
