This degree is intended for students who are interested in a course which emphasize the application of software in business and industry. The course provides a grounding in computer science, the construction and use of database systems, new media technologies, systems administration, artificial intelligence and business information systems. During your time at Bangor you will develop an understanding of the fundamentals underpinning computer information systems and their application in industry. You will be able to describe the operation of these systems and apply a range of principles and concepts to the production of properly engineered software. Crucially you will understand the drivers for the future trends in this fast moving area. New modules have recently been introduced that will enable you to design and build your own computer network. This work is undertaken in a recently developed specialist network laboratory.

The industrial placement year provides you with a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and develop valuable skills and contacts through working with an organization relevant to your degree subject. Previous and current students have worked with a wide variety of placement providers, ranging from private companies to educational organizations, charities, government authorities and non-governmental organizations. Our students who have undertaken an industrial placement year have highlighted how the experience has helped them to develop invaluable networks, confidence and life experience as well as subject knowledge and skills that have boosted their employability.

The Industrial Placement Year is undertaken at the end of the second year and students are away for the whole of the academic year. The minimum period in placement (at one or more locations) is seven calendar months; more usually you would spend 10-12 months with a placement provider. You would normally start sometime in the period June to September of their second year and finish between June and September the following year. Industrial Placements can be UK-based or overseas and you will work with staff to plan and finalise the placement arrangements.
