Combining the best of computer science with hands on practical skills, this four year degree will see students gain skills, knowledge and competencies in software development, mobile application development, web development, game and interactive development, entrepreneurship, networking, and cyber-security.

In your final year, you’ll specialise in an area such as software design, mobile development, human language technology, data science, high performance computing, game development, cloud computing and more. Our annual display of final-year student work allows students to showcase their creative and technical talents to a range of industry employers and business groups who are keen to secure the best graduate talent to meet the demands of the growing IT industry.

During your studies, you will have access to state-of-the-art computing, networking and cyber-security labs. You’ll have easy online access to course materials, and on-site support from enthusiastic academic staff willing to share their expertise and knowledge with you.

Professional Accreditation: As part of the computing course, you can receive dual accreditation for industry-certified courses such as CompTIA, Cisco CCNA, Linux and Microsoft.

IT Requirements: A MEDIUM spec (i.e. able to run Win 10, an AV solution and Office comfortably. Be able to use Wi-fi and camera to attend online classes, use other software such as SPSS, Adobe Connect, Minitab, Maple, so needs more RAM, SSD, etc.)
