The university’s portfolio of Computing courses is developed in partnership with employers to ensure our graduates have the skills demanded by industry.
Whether you are looking to develop a career as a computing specialist, in IT support and network management or to work creatively with computers, our courses can provide you with the grounding you need as well as the freedom to specialise.
Our strong emphasis on high-quality research also informs the content of taught courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

This expertise, as well as the support provided, means teaching from foundation degree through to postgraduate level is consistent, relevant and engaging.

The recently-opened Centre for the Creative Industries will also play a key role in teaching and research in a range of areas.
