Course summary

Overview

BSc Computing is about realising your ideas – from design, to development, to deployment. You’ll learn skills identified by industry as critical to the computing sector, including computational thinking, software development, problem solving, user experience design (UX) and co-creation. These themes underpin the course, and are spotlighted in the Innovation Lab – a collaborative ideas space that reflects a professional tech studio. Here, you'll build commercial products and experiences that address a gap in the market, while receiving invaluable feedback and advice from entrepreneurs and industry specialists.

Across the course, you work to develop high-end portfolio pieces designed to showcase your talents to potential future employers or clients. You'll gain first-hand knowledge of the computing sector through specialist lectures and our industry-insight events, and enjoy support from tutors who interact regularly with the South West creative tech scene.

How will I be assessed?

BSc (Hons) Computing is almost entirely coursework-assessed. You’ll deliver a varied and balanced collection of artefacts including prototype software, experiment collections, interfaces, interactive experiences, and design portfolios. Project work is supported by contextual essays, reflective commentaries, reports, tests, pitches and presentations.

How will I be taught?

You’ll be taught through workshops, technical labs, lectures and seminars. These sessions are supported by individual and group tutorials as required.

A network of visiting speakers keeps you in touch with developments in the computing sector, while placement opportunities and live briefs allow for project-based interaction with industry professionals.
