From the very beginning of the Computer Science programme, there will be a strong emphasis on software development, and you’ll gain a robust understanding of computer programming as a foundation.
As you progress, you’ll explore a wide range of subject areas including front and back-end development, cyber security, software design and global intelligent systems. You’ll learn new technologies, languages and approaches which will enable you to develop innovative computer-based systems in this rapidly evolving domain. In addition to technical capability, you’ll develop an understanding of complex business organisations, and explore the legal, social, environmental, ethical and professional challenges they face. You will learn to be an effective communicator and work collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams.
