About this program

BSc (Hons) Computing

Computing is a creative activity which applies appropriate technology to the solution of problems. Computing professionals are involved in the investigation and analysis of problems, the design and evaluation of feasible solutions and the implementation of cost-effective ways of meeting user needs. They must communicate with a wide range of people (managers, users and colleagues) and be aware of the business implications of the decisions made. Our students learn how to keep up with the latest tools and techniques and practice their application to real-world problems.
