Overview

Modern business increasingly depends on information systems. Industry and the public services need graduates able to develop reliable, sophisticated, complex, cost-effective and high-quality computer systems. The Department of Computing courses cover the techniques and principles of computing that will allow you to become a professional in this high demand area. You will undertake practical work throughout the course and this is underpinned by theory to enable you to make informed choices and decisions. The courses also include a software engineering group project in the second year to develop team-working skills, and a major individual project in the final year that allows you to specialise in an area of interest to you.

Computer Science, the broadest and most popular of the courses, covers the knowledge and techniques concerned with the design and exploitation of computer technology from both hardware and systems software perspectives.

It has a flexible range of optional subjects in the final year allowing you to apply your skills to the widest range of future career options.
