Subject

Business information technology

Would you like to work at the forefront of the technological revolution, using your skills to bring solutions, services and information to people who need them? Are you fascinated by how technology is changing the way businesses function and the way we live? Would you like to learn how to apply this in the real world? Then our Computing for Business programme is the degree for you!

Our Computing for Business degree is an exciting programme that combines core computing skills along with a strong business focus. The main ethos of our course is to give you the skills and practical experience employers are looking for, while our strong emphasis on entrepreneurship equips you with enough organisational skills to allow you to maximise your business potential.

Our Industrial Liaison Board maintains close links with industry and employers, ensuring our course reflects the latest developments in business practice and technological development.

You’ll have the opportunity to work on projects in the local community and further afield, applying your developing knowledge and providing practical solutions for real-life problems.

Modules

The Computing for Business course is either three years full-time, four years with an optional one-year work placement or five years part-time. We’re fully accredited by the British Computer Society, the chartered institute for IT, so our course will set you on the path to become a Chartered IT Professional (CITP).

In your first year, you’ll cover core components of computing in business such as information systems modelling and design, programming, web technologies and network systems. Our practical approach to learning will ensure you get plenty of hands-on experience.

You’ll also complete a year-long project of your choice in your final year, with the chance to work with others nationally and internationally.

There’s also the option to undertake a year-long industrial placement after your second year, usually paid. We have long-standing links with many well-known employers who can offer you a worthwhile placement. Like many of our students, you could go on to gain permanent employment with your placement organisation.

Assessment methods

We’ll assess you through a combination of coursework and exams. Coursework might include presentations, software demonstrations, research-based assignments and practical exercises involving system or program specification, coding and testing. You’ll always receive detailed feedback outlining your strengths and how you can improve.
