Content

In Semesters 1-3, students from all three of our computing-related degrees (Computing Science, Software Engineering and Business Computing) take the same core modules in Computing Science. Core concepts include: Computational Thinking; Programming Using Java; Social and Professional Issues; Usability and Accessibility of Interfaces; Data Structures, Objects and Algorithms. You’ll also take two further subjects. In Semester 1, you must take a Mathematics module.

Semesters 4-8 cover compulsory modules such as Computer Systems and Software Engineering. Optional modules include: Computer Security and Forensics; Artificial Intelligence; Web Services; Telecommunications; Games Development.

Honours students work on an independent project in their final year. The choice of project topic can be motivated by a particular interest that you have, and may involve the design and development of a major piece of software, an investigation into a particular research-driven topic or the development of control software for a hardware device.
