Course summary

Overview

When you study computing, you're in demand and have brilliant career prospects. At Worcester, we teach the skills employers want - and you can develop them in a range of computing areas, tailoring your choice of modules to suit your interests and ambitions. Anything from web design, programming and information systems to games development, drone technology and e-business.

You can also work on live client projects through our Media Lab software consultancy, develop your leadership and management skills, and even start up your own business through our Business School's Incubator. We also offer placement opportunities with companies such as Bosch, IBM and Clearview, and you can present your final year project to industry representatives at our annual Computing Showcase.

Key features

  • The first drone module in a UK university, where you can learn to be a drone pilot and understand how to use drones in industry.
  • Benefit from our Media Lab, where businesses request project work (such as designing a web page, a mobile app or a game) and students apply to work on it and get paid while gaining real-world experience under the guidance of a lecturer.
  • Course designed in consultation with employers, aligned with industry standards, and taught by experienced computing professionals.
  • 24/7 access to excellent IT facilities, including dedicated PC and Mac labs featuring industry-standard software.
  • Friendly, sociable team of students and lecturers - for example, the Gaming Society runs regular gaming sessions on campus and arranges field trips to games events.
