Course Description

Our programme will give you practical skills in software development and interface design, underpinned by a strong grasp of the fundamental principles of IT. We cover programming, software engineering, computer and network design and the theory of computing, as well as multimedia, usability and interaction.

You’ll gain practical experience of building computer systems in progressively more demanding contexts, and develop a deep understanding of how to solve problems using modelling and abstraction techniques. With a flexible curriculum, you’re encouraged to pursue your own interests.

In the final year, you’ll design an individual project based on your own interests and linked to research areas in the School, such as security, big data, computer gaming, interaction design, machine learning, pervasive computing, theoretical computer science, social network analysis or digital audio.
