Software Development with Cyber Security

University of Stirling

Degree level: Undergraduate

Course summary

The BSc (Hons) Degree in Software Development with Cyber Security is a unique course developed to meet the identified skills shortages within the industry by allowing participants to develop in the areas that are key to contemporary technologies. Much of the focus is on software development with particular emphasis on the development of analytical skills. This degree is taught at Forth Valley College and the University of Stirling and benefits from the varied expertise located at both these sites. The degree has also been developed with input from the Scottish Computer Science employers' community who recognise the need for highly skilled "work-ready" graduates. There will be a focus on employability and industrial awareness throughout the four year degree. One key component of the programme is an industrial work placement in the third year. As you study, you’ll progress from the fundamentals of computer systems and software development to advanced knowledge of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Security. You’ll learn everything you need to become a highly employable and sought after IT professional graduate. We deliver this course in partnership with Forth Valley College to combine the knowledge on both sites. Classes for the first two years will be delivered at Forth Valley College’s campus in Falkirk. Classes for the last two years will be delivered at the University of Stirling campus. Our staff are active in research and work with industry to help the course evolve according to the needs of the ICT sector, both in Scotland and across the world.
