You also take part in a business project - an opportunity to undertake a industry-relevant development work.
There are a number of subject areas to select from including:
How to understand the Key Information Set
You attend a combination of lectures and practical sessions for each module. Lectures concentrate on teaching the principles while practical sessions allow you to put these principles into practice in purpose built labs. Throughout your practical sessions you receive feedback on your work and progress. You often work on a piece of work for several weeks building a deeper understanding of the subject as you work. The feedback you receive will help you to get the most out of your learning.In your final year you also undertake a personal project which integrates much of the work you have studied in previous years.
A variety of assessment methods are used. Your assessments are designed to build on the work you undertake in class, because your learning continues through the assessment period. An in-course assessment often consists of a practical exercise and an associated report helping you to develop both technical and business skills.

You get hands-on experience that will improve your employment prospects when you graduate. Our placements team offer help and support throughout the placement process including guidance on applications and interviews, to help you get a placement that suits you.
Our computing students go into a wide range of careers, both nationally and globally. Graduates have gone on to work in the power industry, avionics and the pharmaceutical industry.The degree also provides an excellent basis for postgraduate study and research.
