Computer Science with Management & a Year in Industry BSc
UCAS code: G4NG
Our Computer Science with Management and a Year in Industry BSc combines comprehensive coverage of the principles and disciplines of computer language, programming and project design with an introduction to fundamental management areas. If you see yourself in a managerial role in computing, this course may be ideal for you. The first two years of the course focus on the foundations of computer science and management and will equip you with the skills to develop a software system as part of a team – something that will serve you well for your future career. You will spend your third year undertaking an industry placement before returning to complete a final year with us. This depends on you reaching a certain grade and obtaining a suitable placement opportunity. Finding an industry placement will require students to be resourceful and engaged. The Faculty has dedicated placement support who can provide advice and host employer-led events, ensuring you have all the tools to secure the right placement for you. The final year allows you to specialise your knowledge and showcase your talents by completing an individual project. Our BSc will allow you to understand the underlying principles of a range of Computer Science and Management areas, including: - Software Engineering (e.g. programming skills and technologies, as well as planning, implementation, and maintenance of large software projects) - Algorithms and Optimisation (e.g. analysis and benchmarking of software, algorithmic techniques) - Cybersecurity (e.g. cryptography and Information security) - Systems Engineering (e.g. real-time and embedded systems, communication protocols, and systems-level programming) - Foundations of Computing (e.g. programming paradigms, and computational models) - Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence (e.g., formal logics, search techniques, machine learning) - Management essentials (e.g. principles of marking, accounting and economics) - Management specialisations (e.g. Corporate Social Responsibility, Human Resource Management and Business Strategy) It will also provide you with the background knowledge and skills required to become a successful professional able to work in a range of exciting roles (see Careers Prospects). Women in Science Scholarships As part of the faculty's work on diversity & inclusion, we are actively working to support women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in order to address the current imbalance of women working and studying in these areas.
