BSc (Hons) Computer Science gives you the full breadth of modern computational technology. You get a deep understanding of everyday applications from social media to online banking, and you will learn to write your own applications and services. Joining this course takes you on a journey from the fundamentals such as logic and hardware, data and networks in the first year to the specialist subject knowledge – such as artificial intelligence and data security – in the second year. In your final year projects (one individual and one as part of a small team of about six people) you will then apply your knowledge by developing a software application of your own choice, guided by a dedicated supervisor and sometimes in partnership with an external company.
Graduates of the course often continue on a postgraduate Masters in a specialist area or enter employment as Software Engineers, but the course equips you for a variety of roles within Computing and Information Systems.
The best thing has been the careers department; I'm getting a job offer a week because of the diversity of the course. The course itself was in depth and covered lots of areas.

Whether you have a lot or no experience of the industry, if you are looking for a programme that blends both the theory and practice of sustainable design and construction in detail then this course is a must. This course has not only helped me to gain employment but also to bring real value to what I have been working on. I really enjoyed my final year completing my honours project and learnt a lot as a student on the BSc (Hons) Construction Management Course.

The course is employment focused and students will gain the knowledge and skills to gain employment in several positions such as Helpdesk and Support Engineers, Network Systems Engineering, Network / Systems Administrators, Project Managers, Network Security Specialist etc.,
I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Advanced Networking course at the University of Bedfordshire. It was a very informative and excellently delivered course. One which I would definitely recommend to anybody, who would like to expand their knowledge in the networking sector. My tutor Dr Ghazanfar Safdar, was exceptionally helpful and had a wealth of knowledge, and was always close by to offer guidance and help when necessary. This really made it a very fruitful experience.
