Turn your passion for tech into your profession with a degree in computer science.
Tech careers are exciting, fast-paced and constantly changing.
Our innovative, employer-focused approach means we started with the skills employers are looking for, and built our Computer Science degree around them.
From software development and programming to disruptive technologies and augmented reality, you'll have the chance to develop an enviable blend of tech and transferable skills that will help you stand out in the competitive graduate jobs market.
Get hands on
You'll work with employers throughout your degree, gaining hands-on experience through professional work placements and putting your skills into practice on live employer projects.
You'll also study in Leeds, which is one of the leading centres for tech in the UK.
It's home to a huge variety of organisations employing tens of thousands of people in sectors such as digital, health, finance, IT services and consultancy, gaming and marketing.
Employers are strongly engaged at each stage of the degree, helping you to develop the technical skills and knowledge of workplace practices that you need to be successful in the competitive tech and digital sectors.
You’ll complete extended professional work placements and live employer projects during each year of your degree, gaining the extensive industry experience you’ll need to get your first graduate job.
We’ll work closely with employers to secure placement opportunities which will help you further develop your skills and confidence in the workplace.
Modern computer science roles are numerous and varied, ranging from AI developer to UX/UI designer, Scrum Master and Cyber Security Analyst. These roles require a far more diverse skill set than the traditional stereotype would have you believe.
You may choose to continue your academic studies with postgraduate research or a taught programme such as a PGCE Computer Science with ICT for those looking to pursue a secondary teaching career.
You’ll have access to cloud computing technologies such as Microsoft Azure and MS developer tools such as Visual Studio Pro.
We have Android tablets for developing and testing Android apps and we are developing our toolkit of IoT and maker project resources such as Raspberry Pi’s, sensors and virtual assistants.
You’ll be encouraged to let your imagination loose prototyping physical products.
