Computing Science is the study of computers, their possibilities, their use, their design and their limitations. It is about using computers to solve interesting and challenging problems. It encompasses the systematic design of reliable and efficient computer programmes, information processing systems, computer architecture, and intercommunication networks.
The full-time BSc (Hons) in Computing Science allocates a 6-month work placement in its third year, enabling students to gain invaluable experience in an I.T.-related work environment. Individual subject certification is available throughout the faculty, thus allowing students to specify in areas of interest and prepare for their ideal career.
The Computing Faculty lecturing staff have a high academic profile with PhD holders distinguished in their fields. Plus, a good student / lecturer ratio ensures that students will get the mentoring and one-to-one attention required to maximise their learning.
Computing is one of the faculties featured at the annual Creative Show, giving students the opportunity to present their work in diverse fields to a wide audience. Subfields represented have included Computer Graphics, Games Development & AI.
Renowned industry speakers share their insights into the fundamentals of Computing Science and the I.T. industry, offering students invaluable career advice and the opportunity to build a network within the industry.
