Study in one of the largest and best resourced computing departments in the UK. Our Computer Science degree combines a solid grounding in computer science fundamentals with flexibility and choice through option modules. Our teaching facilities are supported by extensive networked specialist computing labs with the latest software which you’ll need to exploit the discipline. The course is designed with input from Google, Amazon, and Cisco, and in choosing modules you can elect to study for certifications from both Amazon and Cisco, as well as Microsoft. The course will prepare you to enter a range of employment roles related to the wider area of computer science. The course follows our brand-new pathways structure, so in the second year of study you can choose to specialise in one of the following subjects, gaining a more focused expertise and making yourself more employable in specific roles: Cloud Technologies Network Computing Software Development Internet and Web Management The Computer Science degree combines a solid grounding in Computer Science fundamentals with flexibility and choice. On Levels 5 and 6 of your degree you will study core modules (50%) and some option modules (50%), so in total you will choose half your course of study for yourself after Level 4 (as well as the subject topic of your Final Year Project) which means you will be able to tailor your learning to your own interests and build strengths through selecting specific topics which will support your eventual career. Your choice of option modules is very important (and we therefore guide you) since it is necessary as in some cases pre-requisites exist and we aim to work with you to design an appropriate route through all levels of the course. This course will give you the chance to become a computer science specialist in many areas of the discipline. To develop your knowledge and understanding further you’ll also have the opportunity to complete an industrial placement between the second and third year of your course. You can choose options in areas such as: Enterprise Computing, Networking, Web, Interactive Media, Mobile, Forensics and Cyber Security, Augmented Reality, and Programming. The University has extensive links with companies such as Microsoft, CISCO, Merakai, Juniper, Google, and Amazon (as examples), as well as many others. You will find on the course that we arrange regular visits from such companies to introduce new technologies and equally to deliver guest lectures for you to attend.
