BSc (Hons) Computer Science

This BCS-accredited Computer Science degree combines the theoretical foundations of computation with practical software development. You will develop knowledge and expertise in creating industrial strength software applications, using up-to-the- minute commercial practices. Computer science is a wide field, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge development in robotics and intelligent systems.

The course has been designed in line with professional standards and is your first step towards a career in software development. You’ll work on real problems in readiness for employment, enabling you to keep up to pace with this rapidly changing field. You’ll learn about abstraction, complexity, evolutionary change, sharing of common resources, security and concurrency. From system functionality to usability and performance, you’ll also be better placed to solve real-life problems with an understanding of how they affect people’s lives.

BCS Accreditation

This Computer Science degree has been accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by BCS. An accredited degree entitles you to professional membership of BCS, which is an important part of the criteria for achieving Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status through the Institute. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
