Program description

BSc (Hons) Creative Computing - Full time

Study computing systems and the human/social aspects of computing. Learn how to build and deploy computing systems in contexts ranging from homes and offices to hospitals and supermarkets.

This degree develops your skills in both programming and information technology. You will learn key technical skills like web development, networking protocols, and computer security, as well as the ‘human’ facets around information systems.

We will be making some changes to the way our programmes will be delivered in 2021-22 to ensure we continue to respond to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. All programmes will be delivered in-person on campus with some specific sessions within each programme being delivered online in a pre-recorded format. Where necessary, changes will also be made to assessment formats.

All changes will be considered through the College's established processes to assure the quality of each programme. Approved changes to programmes will be published to the programme changes page.

If government guidelines change, it may mean we need to make further adjustments to teaching arrangements. If this is the case, you will be notified of any further changes.
