Computing (4 years with Placement)

Do you have a passion for computing? Are you fascinated by modern technologies? This British Computer Society accredited degree programme focuses on the technical aspects of computing, placing a strong emphasis on programming skills. This will help you to attain the vital technical knowledge required to pursue a range of IT careers, as well as the transferable employability skills needed to secure your first role. This hands-on degree programme encourages students to develop an extensive knowledge of computer programming. Students have the opportunity to develop these skills by designing, building and implementing computer systems, culminating in a major final-year software development project. Students are able to select optional units in the third and second year of study. These units include: human-computer interaction (HCI), applications of artificial intelligence, and network management. Selecting optional units allows computing students to tailor their degree to an area they would like to progress into after graduation. The experienced teaching team maintain a strong network of industry and employer contacts. Students are encouraged to utilise these networks to seek work experience placements. Previous students have secured placements at GSK, Accenture and Clevertouch. Students will have the chance to showcase their final year projects at an end of year degree show, industry representatives are invited to attend - and in previous years students have secured employment or work experience as a result.
