BSc (Hons) Computing

 

New curriculum for the Next Decade

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 part-time. Full-time study means completing the programme in three years, while part-time students can complete the full degree in four/five years.

What is special about this Programme
IT and Computing fields are facing enormous challenges caused by the fast-changing environment in which job positions and requirements change quickly, and many jobs become obsolete as they are displaced by digital technologies. We believe that this programme allows our  graduates to succeed in this highly competitive and unstable job market. The programme challenges you to be open-minded and highly flexible, and at the same equipped with a solid knowledge background which allows you to understand the underlying principles of diverse technologies and to appreciate the links between specialised disciplines.

The overall aims of the programme are to:
  • Produce graduates who are open-minded and highly flexible, with robust knowledge background which will allows them to recognize and critically apply the underlying principles of diverse technologies and to appreciate the links between specialised disciplines

  • Equip students with the ability to apply state-of-the-art techniques in a consistent and critical way in order to solve practical problems based on real needs and prepare them for professional challenges
    Enable students to work confidently and creatively in all stages of the development process: from planning and design, to crucial components such as databases or GUI, and the key principles related to data structures and networking

  • Provide students with training in core soft skills competencies incorporated into each unit to prepare the students for the various aspects of cooperating in the commercial and professional environment: from working in teams, to formulating their arguments and managing projects

  • Produce graduates with robust knowledge base, and with critical awareness of their capabilities, which will motivate them for further self-improvement and learning in the rapidly developing Computing discipline

  • Offer students the chance to explore more deeply one of two important and relevant areas of computing through choices in Multimedia or Cybersecurity

  • With the focus on real-life solutions and needs, we place special emphasis on the development of soft skills: training in core soft skills competencies are incorporated into each module to prepare the students for the various aspects of cooperating: from working in teams, to formulating their arguments and managing projects. Our students graduate with solid knowledge, but also with critical awareness of their capabilities which motivate them for further lifelong development.
