Duration: 3 years
Computer science is the study of principles, applications, and technologies of computing and computers. It involves the study of data, data structures and the algorithms to process them. Computer science provides skills and knowledge which are essential in a wide range of computing and computer-related professions. It has a huge impact on modern society as it is the cornerstone of all of the digital technologies that we use in our daily lives.
During this degree, you will study the techniques that underpin such areas as complex computing systems, computer graphics, computer security, web technology, mobile computing and artificial intelligence.
You will cover complex computing systems, mobile computing, and artificial intelligence. Get to grips with several programming languages including C++ and Java.
You will also develop your technical skills of programming, software design and operations. In addition, you will acquire a wide range of transferable skills that are sought after by many employers. In addition to these technical skills, we also teach transferable skills, such as team working and communication, which you will need for a rewarding career in any sector.
You’ll be taught by lecturers with expertise across a broad range of areas, with extensive experience in both academic and industrial applications, showing you how to develop and apply your skills.
