Course summary

Our BSc Computer Science degree will provide you with the theoretical tools and professional skills required to solve real-world problems, develop the software systems of the future, and be prepared for a successful career in a sector in constant evolution. Why choose this course?

  • Accredited by the British Computer Society - The Chartered Institute for IT
  • Option to specialise on one of five pathways: Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security, Games, Software Engineering or Web and App Development
  • All necessary mathematics knowledge is provided within relevant modules
  • Gain first-hand experience in industry with our Placement Year option
  • Access a wide range of equipment including supercomputer facilities, a VR lab and a Maker Space
Our initial modules are designed to bring everyone up to speed, regardless of the starting level of coding experience, and to provide a gentle introduction to the skills required for effective academic study. You will then learn advanced programming concepts that can be applied in areas such as games programming, mobile app and web development, artificial intelligence and cyber security, not disregarding the human aspect of Computer Science thanks to the focus on user interaction and user interface design, software engineering methodologies (SCRUM, Agile) and cutting edge research in AI and machine learning. We aim to ensure you have the necessary skillset for a successful career within the field of computing and in your final year you will have the opportunity to further specialise in advanced topics and to work on a final year project where you can unleash your creativity and apply the techniques you have acquired throughout your studies.
