GRADUATE DESTINATION SURVEY 2016
Computer science is a wide field, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge development in robotics and intelligent systems.
This BCS-accredited Computer Science degree has been designed in line with professional standards and is your first step towards a career in secure software development. You’ll work on real problems in readiness for employment, developing key skills that will help you keep pace with this rapidly changing field.
If your desire is to become a programmer, then a computer science course is perfect for you. You’ll learn about abstraction,complexity, evolutionary change, sharing of common resources, security and concurrency.
From system functionality to usability and performance, you’ll also be better placed to solve real-life problems with an understanding of how they affect people’s lives.
As a computer scientist, you’ll learn by doing, making use of high-performance computers, and working individually and in teams to produce solutions to tight deadlines, giving you first-hand experience of agile software development.
