Study this Computing course at Coventry and you have the chance not only to learn core elements of computer science, but also to explore and apply what you learn, tackling contemporary issues such as ‘Big Data’ and big data analytics, while developing real products as you would in industry.
This practical approach to the teaching of computing subjects, which has been praised as a model of best practice by the British Computer Society (BCS), combines activity-led learning, collaborative technical projects and simulation of real world problems.
Our course is constantly evolving to meet the advances of the vibrant field it represents. You’ll be taught by staff who are active in internationally-rated research in fields such as web development, pervasive computing, artificial intelligence, distributed systems and computing for the creative industries.
The curriculum has been designed to produce computing specialists with skills in areas such as systems analysis and design, programming, web development, databases, mobile application development and user centred design. Throughout your studies, we will encourage you to use state-of-the-art technologies including Java, XML, PHP, C++, C# and .NET and modern programming development environments, such as Eclipse, to develop a personal portfolio of work.
By the time you graduate, you will be fully equipped to move on to your professional careers, continue your studies or move on to research, which is why over 90% of our students are successful in achieving one of the above within six months of graduating. (DHLE 2014/15)
