This programme equips you with an in-depth understanding of the key conceptual and technological issues involved in building software systems. After completing this degree, you'll have a strong understanding of how to design, develop and apply software in all areas of commerce and industry. You'll have the option of taking an industrial placement year between the second and final year, allowing you to gain invaluable work experience in a computing, digital design or information technology field. You'll develop a clear sense of the issues involved in building and maintaining reliable software for the sophisticated demands of today's market and for the software industry as it develops throughout the 21st century. You'll explore how computing interacts with a wide range of other subject areas, including applications in the arts and creative industries. Our teaching is strongly focused on practical work in real world situations.
Level 4 - You take the following modules: Fundamentals of Computer Science Mathematical Modelling for Problem Solving Introduction to Programming Web Development Problem Solving for Computer Science Level 5 - You take: Principles and Applications of Programming Data, Networks and the Web Algorithms and Data Structures Software Projects Optional placement year - Our degrees include an optional industrial placement year between the second and final year of study. Although we encourage you to take the opportunity of a placement year, you can also complete your degree in a straight three years. Level 6/your final year consists of option modules (term one) and a major project (term two and three), in which you apply your new technological skills to solve real-world problems in innovative and practical ways. Some examples of current final year option modules include: Neural Networks Computer Security Data Mining Artificial Intelligence Physical Computing Digital Venture Creation Please note that due to staff research commitments not all of these modules may be available every year.
