The overall aim of this programme is to provide a course of study, suitable for non-computing graduates, which will adequately prepare students to either enter industry or to embark on an academic career in computing. Entrants will not be expected to have prior experience of the field and as such the programme has been designed to be accessible to graduates from a wide range of backgrounds. 

More specifically this programme aims to ensure the following:

To provide students with an understanding of the processes and techniques used to specify, design, implement, document and support an effective IT system, either alone or as part of a team;
To produce graduates with a suitable grounding in the theoretical foundations of computation such that they can derive algorithms and implement them programmatically in order to solve complex problems.
To produce highly motivated, technically competent individuals to meet the local, regional and national need for graduates with expertise in computing.
To increase a student’s theoretical knowledge and focus on current research in the field of computing and related disciplines.
To provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary in order to make a contribution to research in the field of computing.
