Why choose this course?

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. This degree aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to work as a computing professional and/or consultant in the design, configuration and management of computer systems. The main focus is on the more technical aspects and underlying principles of computer systems.

 

During the course you will work on practical design projects, laboratory activities and group project work. You will become familiar with industrial practice and software to analyse and simulate computer systems. You will also have the opportunity of working on a live work-based project during your second year, which will allow you to apply your academic knowledge and interpersonal skills in a real-world environment.

 

You can also choose to study this course as a three year programme (without the foundation year) BSc (Hons) Computer Science   UCAS code:4R9B

*Subject to re-accreditation When a course is revalidated, it must also be reaccredited. Accreditation also has to be renewed periodically for existing courses. The details on the website are based on the accreditation of the previous or current version of the course, and the anticipated updates are made as soon as they are known. The majority of courses that are still ‘subject to re-accreditation’ are approved as expected however, this is not guaranteed and should the accreditation not be approved as planned, or be significantly amended or delayed, you will be informed by the university. The course will still run, but assistance will be provided to those who have been offered a place to find a suitable alternative course either at Wrexham Glyndwr University or at another provider,  if applicants do not wish to continue without accreditation.
