If you enrol on any of the BSc (Hons) in Business Computing degrees, you will develop an understanding of the underlying organisational business system and processes that enable the information delivery system and users to carry out the business of the organisation effectively and efficiently. You will also learn what change can do to an organisation to enable the information systems to adapt in a timely and effective manner. Additionally, you will develop a reflective approach to project management issues arising from team based software development.
The modules on the degree cover a range of computing topics incorporating the basic properties of software artefacts, namely information, algorithms, programs, common commercial system and network architectures. System development approaches are also covered, including requirements capture, design methods, models, tools and techniques, implementing and testing systems and software maintenance. Appreciation of project management issues arising from team based software development is also a key feature of the degree. You will learn generic skills in problem solving both individually and in groups involving model building and analysis, applying both theoretical and empirical knowledge to make choices and find solutions. You will also master commonly used notations and methods to reason and communicate clearly about requirements, specifications, designs and solutions. One of the key attributes of a Business Computing graduate is the ability to research and to critically evaluate relevant topics, ideas and issues.
The aim of all undergraduate programmes offered by the Department of Computer Science is to equip our graduates with relevant knowledge and skills required for their commercial careers, making them highly employable. This is exemplified by the year of Professional Practice, where, as part of the degree, a student can gain up to a year’s industry experience (after their second year) on placement in the IT industry. A student may enrol on the degree with or without one of the three specialist areas, those areas being with eBusiness, Human-Computer Interaction or Social Media.
