The BSc (Hons) in Computing offers a pathway of specialist modules that aim to develop skills for students wishing to specialise in Computing. The intention and ethos is to mirror industry set-ups and to develop a high level of creative and technical skill. Prior knowledge of computer architecture is preferable but not essential.
Course Overview. Each year is split into two 15-week semesters.
Year 1 – In the first semester (Sep – Jan), students learn about core skills and practices necessary to be successful in organising and managing both time and resources. This is developed alongside modules in Programming using C# and Website Design. The second semester (Jan-May) will include an Introduction to Networking and Database Design. These skills are essential elements for many computing professions. The final module is Software Design and Development which underpins all major computing projects and will explore the use of software development tools and methods for modelling.
Year 2 – The second year will focus on integrating the skills from year 1 and developing research techniques. The year will start with Advanced Programming using Java, Prototyping and Business Intelligence. These modules will allow the development of object-oriented programming skills to be used across different modules for creative program development. The second semester will consist of Emerging Technologies, Computer Forensics and Games Development.
Year 3 – This will start with Advanced Web Development which encompasses website and database design skillsets. It will also include Advanced Database Development using SQL. The second semester will provide students with the chance to showcase their research skills with Cyber Security and the exploration of the User Experience of Virtual Reality (VR/UX). Alongside these modules all students will undertake a Project based dissertation module over a 24-week period in the final year, this is crucial to the final level of degree that a graduate is awarded.
