Overview

With the Business Computing course, you’ll examine how critical computers are to business and learn how you can create computing solutions to support a range of business needs. As part of your studies, you’ll develop basic knowledge of designing and building software systems and grow a broad base of skills through a combination of theory and practice.

The skills you’ll learn will be highly valued by employers – whether in the software industry itself or in a wider and more strategic context developing IT solutions for any business.

Programme structure

In Semesters 1-3, students from the three computing-related degrees (Computing Science, Software Engineering and Business Computing) take the same core modules in Computing Science.

Core topics include Computational Thinking; Programming Using Java; Social and Professional Issues; Usability and Accessibility of Interfaces; Data Structures, Objects and Algorithms. There are also three core business modules and you’ll take one additional subject each semester.

It is understandable that students have a variety of backgrounds, and, in Semester 1, the course can be adapted to suit your previous experience and qualifications.

In Semesters 4-8, the course is made up of both core modules and optional advanced modules, giving you a chance to explore your particular interests further.
