Computing BSc (Hons)

The computing industry is continually growing and is integral to people’s daily lives and businesses.
This general pathway provides a rounded education and broad-based computing qualification. The specialist pathways provide more focused routes for those who have clearly defined career aspirations or interests, while still seeking to develop knowledge and skills in a range of computing disciplines. This programme uses practical examples to reinforce your theoretical underpinning as well as utilising our state-of-the-art computer facilities. All Computing students study common modules during stage one – this allows greater flexibility when choosing a specialism for stages two and three.

Open access computer suites and teaching rooms. You may also benefit from having your own laptop if you choose to do so.

Career opportunities
Recent graduates have entered into a number of different computing areas, including computer systems hardware development, computer networking, software development and internet technology. Students have also continued onto postgraduate courses available at the University.
