Do you want to develop the skills to be a leading IT professional? Our Computer Science course will develop your skills in producing computer systems solutions. You will gain a sound mathematical and scientific understanding alongside developing the professional attitude needed in industry.
You will study the fundamental concepts of computer science in your first year, including computer programming, user interface design, information systems, computer networks and computer architecture.
In your second year, you will consolidate your learning by studying advanced subjects that emphasise software engineering skills. You will also be introduced to topics such as systems fundamentals, data structures and algorithms, discrete mathematics, and web application development.
In your final year, you will broaden your understanding of computer science by studying specialised subjects like artificial intelligence, cyber security and wearable computing. In addition, you will complete an individual project in order to demonstrate your technical skills and general employability in preparation for career progression. The individual project simulates typical graduate workplace tasks that require in-depth knowledge and skills in a specific area of computer science. This will include consideration of wider issues and the ability to manage activities and resources, and to generate, implement and report on solutions to meet task objectives.
