Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Computer Science at Brunel is one of the largest research groups of its kind in the UK. We have a vibrant and multinational community of students, academics and researchers. Computers are the key feature of contemporary life across the world and at the heart of just about everything we do. It’s difficult to think of a single thing you might do today that does not in some way incorporate computer technology. 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.

Our Business Computing courses will give you a thorough understanding of how information technology and computerbased systems help businesses. 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. You can specialise in e-business, human computer interaction or social media.

By specialising in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), you will learn about how to understand the user experience, and to use that understanding to help build systems that better meet user’s needs.

On this course, you’ll focus on the ways we understand user experience to help build systems that better meet user needs. You’ll learn how to assess organisational problems and create the best computing solutions to solve business needs.

Our Business Computing graduates go on to careers such as software developer, business analyst, web developer, technical architect or helpdesk engineer. Recent graduates have taken up roles with companies such as Accenture, BP, BBC, FDM and Wipro.

The Department of Computer Science is a member of the Microsoft Alliance, the Apple iOS Academic Developer Programme and is an nVidia CUDA Teaching Center.
