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:
