Overview

Our programmes offer you technical hands-on skills all the way through the degree, with a strong foundation in all aspects of computer science, and combine this with an optional year in industry to make you stand out as a graduate. Our strong industrial links provide you with the right balance of technical and professional content for a career or further study. We ensure that our degrees address current commercial needs and hot topics.

Computers are essential in almost every walk of life, from aviation to medical diagnosis. In the era of the internet and increasing globalisation, the applications of computing continue to expand. To cater for this expansion, we offer two programmes, each with a different focus, delivered around a core syllabus of key computing skills.

We offer a Computer Science degree programme which balances technical expertise and professionalism. In addition, we provide a Computing and Information Technology programme which combines technical expertise with business and management. A key focus of both programmes is to develop your applied knowledge and experience. This ensures that you gain skills applicable to leading-edge developments in the real world.

The optional Professional Training year allows you to develop your technical and people skills and to gain experience that will greatly improve your employability. Indeed, a number of our students are offered full-time employment at their placement company after graduation.

The best computing specialists understand the capabilities of the most powerful computers and how to harness them effectively to meet an enormously varied range of real-world situations. Our graduates, with their unique combination of computing, business and technical knowledge, are equipped to enjoy significant rewards in the world’s most exciting industry. Our Department has an excellent network of contacts within industry to ensure a smooth transition from the university environment into the real world.

Career opportunities

Computing skills are the foundation of numerous professional careers in many dynamic sectors such as technology, business, finance, health and the games industry. Our programmes are designed to prepare you to work at the cutting edge of computing and its applications, and our graduates can take many routes into rewarding careers.

Employers are increasingly seeking people with a broad range of skills that encompass management and leadership, as well as technical ability. Our programmes produce graduates with this well-rounded skill set of strong academic knowledge and Professional Training.

Our students are highly regarded in many areas of business and industry. Information technology, the focus of one of our degrees, combines business and computation skills that are particularly in demand across the world. Computer Science and Computing and Information Technology graduates will be highly sought after for a wide range of roles, including within the software, consumer electronics, telecommunications and security industries.

Former Surrey students are now involved in all areas, from software development and building simulation systems to devising IT strategies and managing organisations. Recent employers include Eli Lilly, IBM, Microsoft, McLaren Cars, Accenture, BAE Systems Detica, The Foundry and Thomson Reuters.
