Course summary

Our BSc Computing top-up programme aims to develop knowledge, technical skills and self-directed learning skills in computing, especially in areas affected by rapidly changing information technology. Final-year students carry out a complex real-world computing project.Modern computing and information system skills often become obsolete as new technology is developed. Therefore the programme strikes a balance between learning current skills, which are important in the marketplace, and emphasising the underlying theories, which last longer and which provide a sound basis for developing new skills, techniques and technologies, and even new theories. The social and organisational impacts of information technology are also included. **HIGHLIGHTS**- Graduates of our Computing/IT/Web Development Foundation Degree can gain this BSc with two years of further study. - The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at Birkbeck is one of the first computing departments established in the UK; we celebrate our 65th anniversary in 2022. We provide a stimulating teaching and research environment for both part-time and full-time students.- Our world-class research activity informs our teaching and our interactions with business, public and third-sector organisations. - We have four modern computing laboratories in the Department, with a total of 133 workstations. The labs have projection facilities and are air-conditioned. Our wide range of software runs on a number of platforms including Unix, Windows and Linux. The local area network is a switched gigabit/10gigabit ethernet. The Department and College computers are connected to the SuperJANET academic network. Departmental computer services and networks are managed and supported by the Department's Systems Group.
