BSc (Hons) Computer Science

The fundamentals of Computer Science concepts in first year

Students will gain crucial foundational knowledge in Computer Science regarding digital technologies, networks, software development and web development before having the opportunity to choose from 2 different degree pathways.

The first pathway is BSc (Hons) Computer Science: Cyber Security award which is designed to not only teach students about the technical side of protecting both software and hardware from malicious attacks, but also the necessary skills that will allow our students to thrive inside of an I.T. business environment. By the end of the course students should have expert-level knowledge in specialist areas including network security and ethical hacking.

The second is our BSc (Hons) Computer Science: Cloud Technologies award which will provide students with a deep technical understanding of “The Cloud” along with practical and theoretical experience in using multiple features of cloud computing technologies. Students should be equipped with an expert-level understanding of computer networks, communication and security through critical discussion and practical exercises.

BSc (Hons) Computer ScienceEmployability

Cyber Security: The fields that a Cyber Security graduate can enter are vast and appeal to many different preferences. Firstly, for graduates that prefer looking at the big picture, then the roles of Security Architect or Vulnerability Assessor are most suitable. These professions focus on providing solutions that protect the most vulnerable aspects of a company’s infrastructure. Secondly, for graduates that enjoy the technical side, then Cryptographer or Security Software Developer would be the ideal roles. These roles require writing the programs that encode and decode messages. Finally, for graduates that want to test security systems to their limits, then Penetration Tester or Ethical hacker would be best. These professionals are hired by companies to work day and night trying to break and enter systems (legally).

Cloud Technologies: 2018 was the year of the cloud as cloud computing exploded in the business world. It is estimated that currently 96% of all organisations use cloud computing in one way or another. Therefore, the demand for cloud computing experts is extremely high as although moving all confidential information to the cloud has benefits financial and logistically, it brings with it higher risk of lost information or theft. Our graduates will be positioned to handle roles such as Software Architect, Cloud Engineer and Network Implementation Specialists.

BSc (Hons) Computer Science
Quan Anh Thu
2010 Computer Science Cohort

During my first year at school, I learned a lot of different types of basic code. Each subject has its own beauty, and also, from completing and doing assignments, including individual and group assignments, I know my strengths better. In addition, one of the things I still enjoy most when studying the Computer Course at BUV is that the teachers are very friendly and professional.
