Computing

On this challenging and practical course, you’ll examine the application of innovative technology to solve commercial and industrial computing problems. You’ll develop essential computing skills in your first year with students on other courses. This lets you switch between courses. You call the shots and after Year 1, you choose two routes from: Business Computing, Databases, Multimedia, Software Development and Computer Networks. Between Years 2 and 3, you can spend a year on a placement in industry. You can take a one-year industrial placement after completing your second year/third year if on Foundation entry. Most placements are UK-based, but we regularly place students in English-speaking workplaces elsewhere in Europe. It is possible to study a year of the course at a university abroad. Computing develops your technical, business and people-oriented skills to produce a multi-skilled graduate capable of succeeding in a variety of careers. Depending on your choice of routes, a range of careers is possible including: analysing clients' business requirements and specifying appropriate IT systems, designing and managing networks or developing multimedia, databases or high performance software. A broad skills base will allow you to pursue a range of careers without specialist entry requirements. One of our graduates is working for NATO. Others are working in local industry for organisations such as BAE. Several other graduates have gone on to teach in primary, secondary, further and higher education. Many of our graduates continue studying, mostly at MSc level, but some embark on PhDs.
