Department of Computer Science
Our degrees will help you to become more than just a programmer – you’ll also develop skills in teamwork, communication, systems design and entrepreneurship.
We believe in giving you hands-on experience in a real professional environment. From the second year, you’ll work on real projects for external business clients in the Software Hut. As part of our four-year MComp and MEng degrees, you’ll be able to participate in Genesys Solutions – the only student-run software company in the UK. Graduates who have worked with Genesys have gone on to start their own businesses or entered jobs with leading employers.
You’ll be taught by experts in their field who are up to date with all the latest technologies like iPhone, Android and virtual reality technology. Many of our academic staff are internationally recognised as researchers in specialised fields of computer science. We also host guest speakers from industry such as IBM, Microsoft and Hewlett Packard.
