This degree aims to give you a broad grounding in all principal areas of computing including programming, application development, information systems, computer hardware, web development and networks. Designed to give you flexibility in the units you study, you can shape the course to suit your own interests, areas of specialisation and career aspirations. You will study a curriculum designed in conjunction with industry to equip you with the range of skills and strengths that employers demand. You will cover areas such as databases and business information systems throughout the course and in Years 2 and 3, you will choose option units in order to further develop your skills in your chosen area. You will also have the opportunity to engage in report writing, research-based activities and undertake a large-scale supervised project. Our BSc (Hons) Computer Science, BSc (Hons) Software Engineering and BSc (Hons) Computing degree share a common first year allowing you to transfer between courses after Year 1. Features and benefits of the course: - Accreditation renewal of the degree programme is in progress ahead of 2017 intake (and subsequent years), subject to re-approval by the British Computing Society, the chartered professional body for IT. A BCS accredited degree allows graduates on completion to gain Chartered IT Professional status and become a graduate member of the BCS. - The four year sandwich route gives you the opportunity to spend your third year on industrial placement boosting your employment prospects on graduation. - You will experience what it's like to work as part of a professional team finding solutions to complex problems via group projects. You can also get involved with extracurricular work to further apply your skills, for example, gaming events and the student computing society. - Many of our computing degrees share a common first year allowing you to transfer between courses after Year 1, as you develop your areas of interest. - We recently invested £300k in hardware upgrades across the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Our excellent facilities include ten new state-of-the-art teaching laboratories equipped with high-specification PCs and Apple Macs with high performance systems and specialist software tools which work on Windows, Linux and Mac OS. - Teaching and research laboratories have advanced graphics workstations, clusters of graphical processing units and NEC SX61 and SX8 vector supercomputers. Our usability lab captures and analyses human behaviour as we interact with digital content.
