Five skills you will gain from your degree

When you start your computing degree, you’ll enhance your industry knowledge, develop both personally and professionally and become an innovator for the future.

Not only that, here are the top five skills you’ll gain from your degree:
  1. Problem solving
  2.  Analysis
  3. Team working
  4. Project management
  5. Software development

Problem solving

You’ll learn to think for yourself, use your initiative and find solutions to complex problems. You’ll also become a self-disciplined, resilient and rational learner as you’ll be trialling, test-running, and designing solutions to any problems that come your way.

Analysis

Analysing allows you to understand a wide range of technical projects, including coding and programming. Your analytical skills will need to change depending on what problems you come up against, meaning you’ll become an agile thinker with a great attention to detail. You’ll gain insights into cyber security, networking, information security, web technology and mobile app development, plus much more depending on which path you wish to follow after you graduate.

Team working

Team working is a vital skill that demonstrates to your future employer your interpersonal skills, your ability to work with others and how this will add value to their organisation. You’ll also use this skill in your day-to-day life, as well as your studies. You’ll collaborate with other students and work with a multitude of people from diverse backgrounds, learning how to take into account other people’s opinions and ideas.

Project Management

During your computing degree you’ll be managing several projects and tasks and will also have the option to take part in a sandwich placement year. To do this successfully, you’ll need to be able to plan and organise constructively; control, lead and delegate to your peers; as well as being able to execute and deliver the project requirements to complete the job. Project management supplies you with the ability to be autonomous, communicate effectively and to successfully manage relationships with people in an organisation.

Software Development

As a computing student, you’ll undoubtedly have an insatiable thirst for technology and recognise that it’s constantly evolving. You’ll be our future software developers, changing the way we view technology and how we use it! You’ll learn how to successfully develop games, electronic devices and carry out complex software updates. We have state-of-the-art computer games labs as well as strong ties with companies within the games industry, such as Microsoft, Sony and many local independent studios. Whether you want to specialise in Network Security or Computer Forensics, all of these skills will prepare you for a career in the rapidly growing field of computing and help you stand out from the crowd.

You will be the students of today, shaping tomorrow’s problems.
