On our Computer Science degree, you’ll get an in-depth understanding of both the theory and technical aspects of computing, with an emphasis on programming, data structures, algorithms and computer architecture. We’ve designed the course content with input from industry, so you can be confident the skills you’re learning are the skills that employers look for.You’ll study programming, web development, computing mathematics, information systems and databases as you cover the fundamentals of computing. Then, as you progress, you’ll tackle more specialised areas, like data structures, networks and operating systems.By your final year, you’ll be ready to take on advanced topics like artificial intelligence and the design of programming languages. Carrying out a large-scale project will give you the chance to hone the skills you’ve learned and put them into practice.Students will also have the option, within the first year of study, to apply for the route to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as part of the degree. This offers the chance to work in local schools and qualify as a teacher.
