Course summary

The range of industries that are keen to employ qualified and skilled computing graduates is vast. This course is designed to help you build up your skills to move on to the interesting and rewarding career you’re looking for once you graduate. We aim to give you a good basic understanding of all aspects of computing, while also letting you specialise in the topics that interest you most. You have a range of option modules to choose from, so you can tailor your studies to gain skills and expertise in the areas that motivate and inspire you. Modules cover: * Computer science * Software engineering * Information technology * Web design. You’ll study how to design and build software that is robust, reliable and attractive to use, often co-operating with others as part of a development team, the emphasis is on developing hands-on, practical skills in software development, as well as understanding the human and social contexts of software systems. It’s all designed to help you develop the set of skills you’re looking for, with an emphasis on the practical side of computing. Speaking of practical, we’ll give you every chance to gain real-world experience while you’re here. As well as working on projects in our inspiring computing facilities, you’ll be able to spend a year working on placement in industry. In the first year of your course you’ll be studying alongside students doing our Computing Science, Computing MComp and Software Engineering courses. They all share the same first year, but then move on to cover different areas. So if you find in your first year of studies that one particular area interests you more than others, you’re free to transfer between courses. Just to let you know, if you want to transfer to an integrated Master’s course, you’ll have to achieve an average mark of 60% in your first year. Computing at Huddersfield brings together cutting edge research, industry standard technology, facilities and passionate and supportive staff. But that’s not all, this course is built around flexibility! Designed to give you the chance to tailor your studies to your own strengths, goals and aspirations. By blending a wide range of study options with a core computing program, and not forgetting the opportunity to undertake a placement year, Computing students at Huddersfield find themselves well equipped for graduate employment. ~ Prof Andrew Crampton, Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning).
