Edge Hill University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This degree is for those who wish to pursue a Computer Science route and study modules that specifically develop the technical skills needed for a challenging and evolving career in computational systems, exploring their theory, design, development and application. Modules studied will be underpinned by computation and mathematics theory, as well as programming languages, resulting in career choices in the industry that extend beyond software development and programming and into emergent fields such as data science. This requires modelling and analysis skills coupled with technical knowledge to understand and process large data sets. Students graduating from the programme will not only have skills relevant to a single industry, but will have wide-reaching technical skills and knowledge.
Please visit our website for information on available modules.
You will be assessed through a combination of practical exercises, reports, essays and examinations. We want you to develop the ability to work effectively both independently and as part of a team, therefore assessment includes both of these forms, though the emphasis is strongly on individual work.
