There has long been a demand in industry for the computer expert who can understand the hardware, software and communications aspect of computer and electronic systems. As technology moves forwards, engineering is becoming of significant importance, featuring heavily in all areas including - but not limited to - electric vehicles, manufacturing, power generation, transmission and distribution networks, smart devices, communication and information systems. Graduates from this programme will be equipped with skills and knowledge at the forefront of their discipline to meet the specialised needs of industry, thus enhancing graduate employability. The sustainability of modern life is dependent upon the reduction of carbon emissions through increased energy efficiency of electrical devices and the use of electric vehicles. To support these societal needs, the new generation of engineers must be able to understand new and emerging technologies which will come about in the not-too-distant future. This programme is designed to enhance industrial relevance by focusing on the practical application of theory whilst maintaining academic rigour.

The School of Applied Computing aims to produce graduates that help shape the future of computing and electronics. The course content is contemporary and shaped for employability through close links with local and national employers. Students are assessed through a combination of laboratory-based practicals, assignments, presentations, projects and examinations. Module assessment is often by assignment, or assignment and examination. The final mark for some modules may include one or more pieces of coursework set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by written report and presentation. Students are encouraged to use our links with Software Alliance Wales and Go Wales to work on commercial schemes for their Major Project module. Go Wales provides the opportunity of paid work placements with local businesses.
