BSc Applied Computing (Hons) is a degree designed by University of Dundee for people who are creative, problem-solvers, good team-players and who enjoy a challenge. It is about the satisfaction of software development, not about office applications.
The course is modelled on good practice in industry, and we update it annually to safeguard its relevance to the real world. It is successful too - our students are nationally recognised for the quality of their project work.
You will learn to apply good software engineering principles, whatever the language or technology or platform: Java, C++, C#, Unity, ASP.NET, SQL, NoSQL OpenGL, UNIX and many more.
We also know how important it is to be at the leading edge of computing and so you will learn from research-active staff. Leading researchers teach from your first year through to your final year. The smaller classes mean that we really get to know you, making for an informal and supportive community.
You will be assessed by a combination of practical coursework (20% - 60% of a module mark, typically) and end-of-semester examination.
Coursework is often very practical, e.g. writing computer programs, designing interfaces, writing reports, constructing web sites, testing software, implementing databases, analysing problems or presenting solutions to clients.
BSc (Hons) Applied Computing is accredited by the British Computer Society, the Chartered Institute for IT professionals in the UK and abroad.
