Course summary

Course description

Software makes modern life possible. Featuring a foundation year to build your confidence, this degree equips you with vital skills that will put you at the forefront of software development and programming.

  • 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.

Foundation Year - helping you to achieve more

Including a foundation year as part of your four-year study programme will give you a head start in your academic and professional life. The foundation year offers the chance to strengthen your skills, knowledge and confidence – with extensive support from our expert staff – before you advance to stage one of your honours degree. It could also be beneficial if you are planning a career change and want to get to grips with aspects of subjects which are new to you.

Our degrees with a foundation year are continuous, meaning that you won’t need to apply again once you have successfully completed the first year.
