BSc (Hons) Computing
BSc (Hons) Computing has been developed specifically to offer our students excellent job prospects, regardless of how the technical requirements of the field change over time. The content was developed through feedback from local and international companies as well as our most successful alumni, who provided key insight into what is required of employees in the fields of computing and IT.
As a result students can expect a unique approach to study and learning, including a strong emphasis on communication, teamwork and problem-solving, in addition to the technical skills required in computing.
The programme focuses on practical skills and the use of critical analysis, with students gradually gaining confidence and the ability to learn and understand the very latest topics in the field.
There are two specialist options available: multimedia or cybersecurity, chosen to reflect the specifics of the current marketplace. Students are challenged to be open-minded and highly flexible, and at the same time, to complete the programme equipped with solid knowledge.
Students can choose to study full-time or in blended learning format. Full-time study means attending daily classes, whereas blended learning is more suitable for working professionals, as it combines online, distance learning with on-campus workshops. The programme can be completed in three years.
Students benefit from the unique combination of knowledge and skills that prepare them for various types of jobs in the IT area.
Thanks to our close collaboration with businesses, ranging from small companies to global giants like HP, we are able to identify and incorporate core skills needed for graduates to succeed in enterprise environments, as well as start-up organisations.
Students also learn about corporate business and IT alignment, giving them insight into the various roles and functions within large developer teams, while at the same time being instructed as to all the steps required for complete application development and implementation. This also includes interface design and back-end maintenance requirements.
Thanks to our multimedia pathway, graduates can go on to careers as game developers, for example. Those who follow the cyber security pathway can expect to be in high demand, as corporations in the finance sector, amongst other organisations, are continuously looking for cyber security aware experts.
