Course summary

Introduction

This dynamic computing course has an excellent reputation within the IT industry and will give you the practical experience and technical knowledge you need to excel in the computing sector.

According to Graduate Prospects, the BCS published a report in 2018 looking at the capabilities and skills needed for the future. Business transformation and organisational change are top priorities and roles in these areas will increase. Skills gaps are in mobile and application development, the internet of things, AI & machine learning and data analysis. Computer Weekly reports that advertised tech sector roles grew by 12% in 2017, and soft skills present largest tech industry skills gap.

On our Computing degree you’ll cover a range of subjects relating to modern computing, including internet technologies, usability and systems software, and hone your soft, transferable skills by working in teams on projects; and you'll gain valuable work experience on your placement, giving you a head start in your career. This course is accredited by the British Computing Society (BCS). To be awarded Chartered IT Professional status from BCS you will need to complete a year of further learning beyond graduation and meet other criteria, details of which can be found on the BCS website.

We understand that computing is a diverse subject and that it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in at this stage. So all of our courses within the computing framework share a common first year, giving you the time to really explore the subject before deciding on a specialism. There are courses that allow you to keep a relatively wide focus, as well as degrees that provide a greater level of specialism, giving you plenty of flexibility when it comes to which direction you want your career to take.

Course details

On this course you will be taught by a range of staff with relevant expertise and knowledge appropriate to the content of the unit. This will include senior academic staff, qualified professional practitioners, demonstrators, technicians and research students. You will also benefit from regular guest lectures from industry.

Careers

IT plays an ever-more important role in every aspect of our lives and businesses are always looking for professionals who have the skills and drive to succeed in this fast-paced and ever-evolving industry. This degree will give you all the technical knowledge you need to get ahead, as well as giving you a good grasp of management in an IT setting.

In addition, the experience you gain from your work placement, coupled with the skills you’ll gain on your course, could make you stand out to potential employers. Within six months of completing their course, 100% of our students are employed in a professional or managerial position.
