What will I learn?

In this course you'll learn to understand the theoretical principles underlying a problem, and how to engineer a solution. You'll also become familiar with the practical issues involved in developing reliable, effective software systems in business or industry. You'll learn to program, think analytically, work in a team and develop your communication skills. In the third year, half of your time is spent on a substantial individual project, giving you scope for creative and intellectual input. In the final year, you'll also get the chance to be part of a research team, working alongside a member of staff in one of our research labs. You'll also have the chance to work in our student-run software company, Genesys Solutions. You can enhance your career prospects even further by taking a year in industry as part of your degree. We have a dedicated officer who can help you find a placement. You'll be paid a salary and your University fees are reduced for that year. Our graduates are IT consultants and software engineers in companies such as Accenture, Amazon, BT, Deutsche Bank, Ernst & Young, Google, Hewlett Packard, HSBC, IBM, Logica, Microsoft, Snapchat, Procter & Gamble, Reuters and ZOO Digital.
