Course summary

Are you a computer whizz who enjoys digital information? Do you try to understand how computer systems work? Have you tried different computer languages to invent your own interface? Do you want to get into Big Data, the Internet of Things and smart technologies? This programme will provide you with a solid foundation in a subject area which is in high demand, giving you skills in programme languages; data management; different systems; games; robotics, and problem-solving.Helping doctors to treat a newborn baby, analysing the huge volume of data from the human genome, tracking jet engines in flight and ensuring that maintenance is planned accordingly, and making online shopping easier and more secure - these are just some of the challenges that computer scientists rise to every day by using their technical analysis, design and programming skills that they learn at university to create better and more intelligent tools.The highly relevant curriculum, along with strong industry links, ensures that computing programme graduates have an advantage in a competitive market place. The British Computer Society (BCS) recognises our single Honours degrees for professional membership without additional examinations. The employment record of our graduates is excellent with the vast majority entering occupations of their choice within three months of graduation, in sectors as diverse as banking, pharmaceuticals and computer game development.With us you will learn a range of key computing skills and components, including, data management, artificial intelligence, computer programming, human-computer interaction, operating systems and web application development, to name a few. You will also gain a great mix of theory and practical skills. This is possible in part because of an excellent staff-student ratio and strong record of supporting students find work placements.
