Software makes modern life possible. The Computer Science (Hons) BSc offered at University of Derby equips you with vital skills that will put you at the forefront of software development and programming.
Software is everywhere – running everything from our desktop computers and mobile phones to home appliances, game consoles, cars, planes and industrial machinery. This degree will help you become a skilled computer programmer, adept at developing software and fully aware of the tools and methodologies that underpin software.
To be a successful, knowledgeable and highly employable computer programmer, you need to know computer science – the subject that underlies computer programming and software development.
On this course, you will study applied computer science with a strong emphasis on practical programming skills using cutting-edge software development tools in our industry-standard laboratories.
You will be taught by experienced computer scientists and former industry professionals who continue to maintain active links with employers in the sector.
When you graduate, you will discover there is a strong industry demand for your new advanced skills in software development. The majority of computing jobs require software development abilities and experience. So – whether you want to be a software engineer, project manager, technical architect or chief technology officer – this degree will help you achieve your goals.
While the BSc (Hons) Computer Science is geared towards careers in the software industry, the knowledge and training you receive will prepare you for almost any future career as well as further studies at postgraduate level in computing.
