Course Description

Our BSc Computer Science degree forms the core of our teaching portfolio. It focuses upon how computers work, and how they may be used to solve real-world problems. You will develop a sound knowledge of the fundamentals of computer science, including appreciations of the interaction between hardware and software; and understanding of humancomputer interaction and the sociological impact of information technology; and knowledge of the professional standards and ethics of the computer industry, together with the skills and confidence to react to its ever-increasing rate of change. 

The course is designed to produce high-quality graduates who command a sound technical knowledge of the broad aspects of computer science. You will gain an appreciation of current computing practice so that you can apply the skills you have learned immediately after graduation, whether during further studies or employment. The course also provides an understanding of the nature of computer science as an academic discipline.

Professional accreditation

Our BSc in Computer Science is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS). This is an external recognition of the excellence of our teaching, and it is also a recognition that the skills that you learn while studying the degree are of relevance to industry. Graduates from this degree may join the BCS, and with typically five years of industry experience, graduates may achieve UK chartered engineer (CEng) status.

Career Prospects

While many computer science graduates do become programmers, others are employed in a wide variety of jobs. These include computer analysts, IT consultants and planners, network/systems designers and engineers, researchers, software designers and engineers, web designers, web developers and producers as well as roles across advertising and marketing, business and financial analysis, accountancy and investment/merchant banking and legal and quality assurance professions. Some of our graduates have gone on to work for traditional computer companies such as Adobe, Google, Hewlett-Packard, IBM and Microsoft. Others have found jobs with employers such as Accenture, Experian, and Ocado.

New computer science graduates frequently command

some of the highest-paid entry-level positions compared to graduates in other disciplines. Many of our graduates continue to further studies in subjects such as machine learning, e-commerce, information security and psychology. The School has a good record for recruiting PhD students from our own graduates and our MSc degrees prove an attractive option.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
