You can choose from two pathways; BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Software Development) or BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Networks and Security) pathway.
The Computer Science - Computer Networks and Security (Hons) programme from University of Derby is highly technical with a strong focus on the most important skills within the subject areas. Our Software Development pathway focuses on computer programming, with an emphasis on practical techniques underpinned by theory and informed by research. The Networks and Security pathway is based on a recognised industrial certification in Networks. There is a common first year with specialist modules in your second and final year – this approach gives you the time to understand which area you’re interested in most to help you decide which pathway to choose at the end of your first year.
The Computing industry is growing, and you can be a part of it. It is predicted that job opportunities within Computer Sciences in the East Midlands region will increase by 18.3%, in Derbyshire by 12.8% and by 6.3% nationally between 2017 and 2024. *

You will take part in team projects set by industry as well as the opportunity to take a placement year, so that along with your Computing ability, your skill set is well-rounded.
Whichever pathway you choose, you'll find that your advanced skills in software development or networks and security are in high demand.
