BSc (Hons) Computer Science

Become the next highly sought after professional in the field of Computer Science. Whether it’s software development, internet and web management, cloud technologies, or network computing you’re interested in, we have a pathway for you.

Our BSc (Hons) Computer Science degrees will put you at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies. Throughout your studies, you will combine knowledge of the fundamentals of computer science theory and technology with specialist learning and real-world work experience.

The three years of academic study will give you a broad knowledge of computer science, while allowing you to specialise in your chosen area.

In the first year, you will gain an all-round knowledge in Computer Science covering aspects of software development, application modelling, digital technologies, as well as delve into concepts of networking cloud technologies and web development.

In the second year, you will continue to do a few more core modules covering commercial computing, and databases and data structures. Interestingly, this is when you will have the chance to tailor your course to your interests and future career ambitions; you may opt to study Computer Science as a broad degree, or specialise in:

– Cloud Technologies
– Internet and Web Management
– Network Computing
– Software Development

In your final year, you’ll take your specialisation further by studying advanced modules. Your course will culminate in a Final Project, which will be planned with your course leader; this will be tailored to your own personal needs and demonstrate your knowledge of computer science.

Teaching and Learning

You will learn through lectures, tutorials and workshops. Lectures are highly interactive and incorporate group discussions, video presentations, and activity-based learning. Learning activities are designed to develop soft skills as well as your ability to work independently and as part of a group. Your learning experience will be enriched by field visits and guest lectures by industry experts.
