Location: London 
Study Mode: 
Daytime – Fulltime – 3 Year
Strat Dates: 
September
Tuition fees 2019/20:
UK/EU – £9,250 International – £10,000

The overall aim of the course is to provide a broadly based education in computing systems that will produce graduates equipped to apply best practice in software engineering to the development of a wide range of information systems in organisations. This will enable graduates to embark on a professional career in computing with specific vocational skills relevant to local industry needs. The course will also help meet industry’s current shortage of high quality graduates in computing, particularly those with software development skills.

The BSc Hons in Computing Systems course recognises that software development skills need to be complemented with people and process related skills. Consequently, people, process and professional practice are important topics within modules of the course and allow the development of a broad base of skills appropriate to a software engineer.

The research landscape within computing in recent years has seen topics come to the fore on security and the role of artificial intelligence in society both of which feature in the programme.

This programme is also available as BSc Computing Systems (with Diploma in Professional Practice), which includes the option for a year in industry as part of a 4-year programme.

The intent of Work Based Learning (WBL) is significantly reflected in the programme learning outcomes. During year 3 of this programme, students will have the option to undertake a placement year module, Professional Practice – Computing. This module will provide an opportunity for students to develop knowledge and expertise that can be utilised in their final year studies, and in particular their final year project.

Students will also have opportunities to gain employability skills, reflect upon the applicability of their subject-specific skills, and gain insight into the graduate job market. Students who successfully complete the module are eligible for the award of Diploma in Professional Practice (DPP) or Diploma in Professional Practice International (DPPI) for international placements. Hence, the inclusion of placement year in this programme places strong emphasis on developing industry specific practical skills so that the learners are readily employable.
