The Computing degrees give you the skills you need for the practical application of computing to areas typically found in industry. These include e-commerce, information systems, and computer consultancy. Our Computing course can be studied as the Computing general degree, where a subject focus is decided during the course of the study, or as the themed degree, Computing (Consultancy), where the specific focus is decided at the time of enrolment and named in the degree title. The Business Information Technology degree incorporates much of the Computing course, but also includes business oriented modules. Over half our students choose to do a Year in Industry (see Computing with a Year in Industry below). This gives you work experience, a salary and the possibility of a job with the same company after graduation. The Kent IT Consultancy option offers the opportunity to learn how to become an IT Consultant by providing computing support to local businesses.
