This programme is intended for those who seek to develop good skills underpinned by a firm understanding of the fundamental nature of computation. As computation is becoming all-pervasive, students following this programme will gain a rich and unique set of skills that will open up a wide choice of career paths. The Applied Computer Science programme will introduce you to programming operating systems, networks, and compilers. You will learn to use software tools to design, test, and document large programs using the methods of software engineering. You will learn how to program artificial intelligence, control robots, and create virtual realities. In the final year project you can choose to an area of computer science to study in depth.

There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
