You’ll study programming, web development, computing mathematics, information systems and databases as you cover the fundamentals of computing. Then, as you progress, you’ll tackle more specialised areas, like data structures, networks and operating systems.
By your final year, you’ll be ready to take on advanced topics like artificial intelligence and the design of programming languages. Carrying out a large-scale project will give you the chance to hone the skills you’ve learned and put them into practice.
Our BSc (Hons) Computer Science degree also provides the opportunity to spend an extra year expanding your horizons, working on a placement in industry.
Students will also have the option, within the first year of study, to apply for the route to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as part of the degree. This offers the chance to work in local schools and qualify as a teacher. More information on bursaries and scholarships available can be found on the Department for Education website.
This course is available with a Foundation Year.
Who is this course for
This course is suitable for anyone wishing to study Computer Science.
What will I learn
With our Computing courses, you’ll develop the analytical, programming, web development, problem-solving and professional skills necessary not just to keep up with changes in this industry, but to drive them forward. With all the latest equipment, we provide teaching in specialist labs with high-performance computers and the latest software. We also have strong industry links in a city with one of the biggest creative and digital sectors in the UK. Our courses are developed with industry, giving you the skills and knowledge you’ll need in the workplace. This ensures that by the time you leave us, you’ll be well placed to pursue a range of careers across a variety of sectors.
On our BSc (Hons) Computer Science degree you will study Computer Systems Fundamentals, Information Systems, Introduction to Web Design and Development, Programming (Java), Algorithms and Data Structures, Computer Networks and Operating Systems, Advanced Programming and Professional Development.
In Year 1, you will study core disciplines of computer science, which typically include computer systems fundamentals, information systems, web design and development, and programming (Java).
Your second year will build on your knowledge, with core units typically exploring areas such as algorithms and data structures, advanced programming, and computer networks and operating systems.
In your third year, you will have the choice to either go on a placement, where you’ll work for a year in industry, or continue directly into your final year of study.
In your final year, you will typically study units including artificial intelligence and principles and design of coding languages, and, supervised by a member of academic staff, you will complete a technical project in line with your own interestsVisit this course
