Programme Description

The BSc Computer Science will allow you to develop a wide and practical skillset in computing with strong programming and mathematics skills, as well as softer skills in project management, presentation and teamwork. You will also have a portfolio of work that you can present to potential employers. Depending on the specialisms you choose in the final stage of the degree, you can direct your learning towards particular areas of interest such as machine learning, web development, data science and video games.

With the BSc Computer Science, you will be qualified for a range of computational and mathematical jobs in the creative industries, business, finance, education, medicine engineering and science. Typical job titles include application programmer, software engineer, creative coder, video game developer and systems analyst.

Final Project

In this module, you’ll undertake a substantial independent project that allows you to demonstrate a wide range of skills such as project planning, management, research, software implementation and written presentation. If you are enrolled on a specialist pathway as part of the BSc, you’ll be expected to undertake a project in your specialist area. You will integrate your knowledge gained throughout the degree and use skills acquired in other modules in the implementation of your final project. The work will consist of a combination of research and software development. You will be expected to use methodologies from various components of computer science, including your specialist pathway if appropriate.
