Computer Science is an exciting, challenging and dynamic field. Computers form an integral part of every aspect of society and modern life. New computing technologies are introduced at an exponential rate and as a result the computer science discipline is continually developing to meet with these ever increasing rapid changes.


The demand for graduates with the knowledge, understanding and skills required to analyse, design, develop, test and maintain computer systems is extremely high. Organisations rely on computers for problem solving as well as processing and analysing data. Consequently industry requires specialists to create, understand and further advance the computer science discipline.  This degree will look at computer science as the core of the underlying technologies that are increasingly infiltrating every element of our society.


Employability skills are at the heart of our computer courses including team working, project management, communication and creative thinking.
