BSc (Hons) in Computing Science

General

Program Description

Overview

A key element of the Computing Sciences program is the degree of choice offered to students. As students move through the degree, they increasingly take responsibility for their own learning, deciding which topics to study (from an approved list of computing specialisms) and selecting modules to support their area of interest. This requires students to be actively involved in deciding on their path through the degree and to make decisions about their post-graduation career.

Who is the Awarding body?

The BSc (Hons) in Computing Science is awarded by Staffordshire University

What does the Programme contain?

The Computing Science award combines a solid grounding in computing fundamentals with flexibility and choice. Almost half of your course of study is chosen by you. At each level, you study core modules to give you an understanding of computing concepts and skills in core technologies and at each level you chose the rest of your modules, allowing you to develop skills and knowledge in the branches of computing that you wish to study. The distinctive element of this program is that you can create your own study route, tailoring your choice of option modules to your own interest and abilities. This ensures a good fit between you and your program of study and allows you to select modules which will support your chosen career.

Where does the Qualification lead to?

Bachelor degree holders of this program will be qualified to pursue a career in the IT department of most companies, software houses, and manufacturers as software and application professionals or consultants.

How much time period does it takes?

The BSc (Hons) in Computing Science can be achieved over a minimum period of 4 years.
