Information technology

Become a valuable asset for future employers, bridging the gap between technology and business in the workplace while creating and implementing solutions to problems.

Based at the University of Reading's Whiteknights campus — in the heart of the UK's 'Silicon Valley' — we have strong working relationships with companies, and host regular events which allow students to network and hear from industry leaders.

Gain an understanding of business and IT operations and develop the ability to evaluate an organisation's IT-specific needs effectively. You will focus closely on areas ranging from strategy, accounting, organisational behaviour and e-business to programming, software engineering and databases. You will also examine other areas including consulting, marketing and ethics.

As well as becoming an expert in software design, you will understand how value is created in business activities through the use of IT to establish competitive advantage, and how the alignment between business strategy and technology can be managed in an efficient and effective way.

Learn how to write computer programs, analyse user requirements and design systems using the latest approaches and techniques. You will be taught through a mix of lectures, group projects and interactive classroom lessons. This gives you the opportunity to discuss, explore and apply the subject material in depth with your lecturers and fellow students.

Explore and tackle real-world challenges - giving you the opportunity to test, extend and refine your knowledge and skills.

In your final year, choose modules that inspire you and provide the specialist knowledge that you are looking for, which may be in business, computing or both.

This degree provides you with the opportunity to take a one-year industry placement between your second and final year of study.

Get expert advice and guidance from our careers team – from helping choosing the right industry placement through to supporting you while working during your third year. We provide workshops covering all the main selection methods used by employers. This includes competency interview training, CV, cover letter and application form advice and drop-in clinics. A successful industry placement will enable you to develop excellent professional contacts and may lead to a job offer with your placement company on graduation.

Organisations Henley Business School has worked with in the past include: 3M, Aldi, BMW, British Airways, Cisco Systems, Deloitte, Disney, Dyson, Ford Motor Company, Fujitsu, GE, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, Grant Thornton, Hewlett Packard, HSBC, Hyundai, IBM, Intel, Jaguar Land Rover, Kimberley Clark, KPMG, Lilly, Lloyds TSB, L’Oréal, Marks & Spencer, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Nissan, PepsiCo, PwC, Symantec, Tesco, Unilever, Verizon and Waitrose.
