Why study Computing & Information Technology at BU?
- Many of our computing degrees are accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and can help you work towards Chartered IT Professional status
- Flexibility to specialise around your interests and career goals – you’ll apply for one of our eight courses in this subject area, but can switch to another specialism at the end of your first, meaning you can wait until you have a stronger understanding of the subject before committing
- Open up career opportunities – 95% of our graduates are in work or further study within six months of finishing their course, across a diverse range of computing and IT roles
- Gain industry experience on an optional 30-week placement – our placement students have worked for organisations such as Microsoft, Kingfisher, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Goldman Sachs, and General Electric
- Study in a student-centred learning environment – learn how to apply hands-on skills to solve problems, with an emphasis on intellectual achievement and employability
- As the computing sector is constantly evolving, so too are our courses – reflecting industry and technological developments to ensure you’re well-prepared for the world of work when you graduate.
