Computing, BSc Hons

Computing, BSc Hons

This programme provides you with detailed insight into how computer systems are designed and developed. The programme is run in conjunction with BSc Hons Computer Science, so some courses are common to both. In addition, the broad-based approach allows a flexible learning experience as you can select individual courses in various related areas, such as digital media, information systems and business-oriented computing.

This programme aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry. The courses have been designed in conjunction with industry and are continually monitored to make sure that they match the needs of this exciting but fast changing business; you will have the opportunity to use many different types of hardware and software during your studies.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To educate in the theory, technology, practice and application of computing and the development of information systems
  • To provide awareness of social, legal, ethical and political implications of information technology within a computing environment.
