Where do you see yourself in 3-4 years’ time? Do you have a solid idea of what career role you would like to secure, or do you simply know your strengths lie in working with computers and technology? By studying computer science, you will improve your problem-solving, critical thinking and analytical skills. These skills are applicable in all fields but are especially useful for specialists working with complex algorithms and big data to understand design patterns, identify problems and create solutions.
Our full-time Bachelor’s Degree programme in Computer Science will provide you with the necessary knowledge to understand and build computer-based systems, for the next generation of technological development. The course contents cover basic computer concepts, algorithmic thinking, systems design, problem-solving, artificial intelligence, simulation and computer and data security. The programme teaches students knowledge and skills to pursue a professional career in a wide variety of computer science fields.
As a graduate of BSc Computer Science, you will be in high demand from IT and tech companies since you will develop knowledge of niche theoretical disciplines e.g., algorithms, theory of computation and information theory. You will also be able to secure a job in fields beyond this, employers in complementary fields including manufacturing, finance, consulting, public service, and the creative industries also require computer science experts.
The full-time bachelor’s degree programme comprises a standard study period of six semesters. The curriculum includes a ‘mobility window’ in the 5th semester: a semester reserved for you to study abroad or undertake further modules with an applied focus as part of career development.
For the bachelor’s programmes, the total student workload for the courses is 180 ECTS credits.
A key element of this programme is the Career Development Semester, within which you will work on an end-to-end software engineering project. This project will allow you to work on a business problem, similar to what you may be given by a future employer. You will take this problem and develop a solution by collecting data, then building software to resolve the problem. You will then evaluate, test, and deliver the business solution, just like you would for an employer or client.
