Course Introduction

Students will gain an appreciation of the foundations of computation, acquire an understanding of the structure of programming languages and develop the skills to put these concepts and technologies into practice. Students acquire expertise in a wide variety of technologies, learn commercially'valuable skills and work with internationally renowned research groups, learning the latest developments. The degree is suitable for students who want a career with a comprehensive grounding in computing, have a strong interest in software technologies and want the fundamental knowledge and skills to keep up'to'date in a field in which rapid and accelerating change is the rule rather than the exception. There is a need for graduates with a flexible and mobile set of skills to enter an industry that makes a multi'billion pound contribution to the UK economy ' and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Computing and Information Technology courses at City are designed to be a path to leadership in tomorrow's complex and information intensive world; graduates being leaders in technical expertise, strategic thinking, innovation and communication. Computing theory and practice are delivered in lectures, tutorials and practical workshops and students' knowledge is enhanced by input from City's world'leading research groups. There are two routes by which students may gain paid work experience as part of their degree: a one year placement or the innovative Professional Pathway scheme which enables students to combine placement employment with their studies. Both options are available with this computing degree course. At City, we will help students to develop the skills they need for a challenging and rewarding career in computing and IT.
