Computer Science

Computers are an integral part of modern society, with technology touching all aspects of life including commerce, industry, healthcare, communication and recreation. The pace of change and innovation is rapid, and shows no signs of slowing down. Companies of all sizes have an urgent need for people who understand this technology – how to create it and how to make effective use of it. A degree in Computer Science will provide you with the practical skills you need to be able to do useful things when you start your career, and with the theoretical knowledge you need to be able to learn new techniques and concepts as technology evolves. You will learn the foundations of programming - Java is our main language (you will also cover Javascript, PHP and C++), but the important thing is to understand the principles of programming that can be applied to any language you need to learn. You will learn Linux, databases, artificial intelligence, networking and computer graphics. You will also learn the latest professional techniques and tools, such as agile methodology, design patterns, test driven development, HCI and security. You will complete group and individual projects addressing real world problems. This course is professionally accredited by the British Computer Society, and the university hosts some meetings of the BCS Manchester Branch in which you can participate.
