Programming

**Just about every business and organisation has a web presence. And many of them are looking to expand that presence and harness the latest technology such as cloud computing or touch technology. There is a huge demand for skilled graduates who understand the technology and can help organisations serve their customers better and stand out from the competition.**

Cloud computing, touch, gesture and motion-based technology, as well as mobile and tablet apps – if you can keep pace with new technology, and know how it can be used to:
- Inform

- Educate

- Market

- Sell

- Innovate

Then you could be an attractive prospect for an employer. This course aims to provide you with the skills to help organisations harness the technology. We’ll look at making applications for web, desktop, mobiles, kiosks and projections. You’ll study the principles of creating and accessing data, as well as embedding other data structures such as maps, Flickr pictures, tweets, eBay bids, Amazon offers and Facebook comments in your digital products.

To help you develop your capabilities, we’ll look at a range of computing languages. The most common ones we use are JavaScript, PHP and ASP.NET, and we’ll also cover innovative frameworks such as Bootstrap and Laravel, as well as taking an indepth look at database design, data access and its visualisation.

During your studies you’ll be given the chance to take a placement after your second year. It’s an excellent opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice. You can take advantage of our links within the industry to help find a placement that suits you. You could end up anywhere from a globally recognised brand to a small, local company. Gaining real-world experience could make all the difference when you graduate and start looking for a job.

You are encouraged to explore and experiment with new technology and novel concepts. When you graduate you may end up working for a company who specifically wants you for a skill or product you developed in your final year project, or you may decide to take it to market and become an entrepreneur. To be successful on the course you will need a strong interest in the technical side of web/app development and connecting with a variety of data streams.

There's also the opportunity for you to start your own small business through our Enterprise Placement Year scheme. You might like to hear what Dan has to say about studying Web Technologies BSc(Hons) at the University of Huddersfield - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLlt4m_z9rM

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

A specialist subject, and not surprisingly graduates tend to go into software engineering roles or related. The degree classification students achieved made a particular difference last year — computing graduates with the best grades were much less likely to be out of work after six months and employers can even rate a good grade as important as work experience. Most students do get jobs, though, and starting salaries are good — particularly in London, where average starting salaries for good graduates were getting towards £38k last year. Be aware that at the moment, recruitment agencies are much the most common way for graduates from this degree to get their first job, so it may be worth getting in touch with a few specialist agencies in advance of graduation if you take this degree to get a foot in the door.

What about your long term prospects?

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
