Computers are the key feature of contemporary life across the world and at the heart of just about everything we do.

This is an innovative, fast'moving area of study, constantly breaking new ground. Consequently, there is strong demand for computing graduates in many commercial, industrial and public sector environments.

During the first two years (Levels 1 and 2) you’ll study modules that are common to all the degrees. In the third year, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a specialism that interests you.
