Description

Description
BSc Computer Science is a broad curiosity-driven (that is, you can choose to specialise without restrictions) degree. This degree leads to a qualification that will enable graduates to enter careers across the broad range of computing specialisms.
The BSc in Computer Science is accredited by the British Computer Society. Our student placement scheme is run by IT Wales, an industrial and community programme founded by the Computer Science Department at Swansea in 1993. Our full-time industrial liaison team links the academic expertise and resources in Computer Science to the skills and technical requirements of commerce and industry. This relationship helps ensure that our students have the skills they need. IT Wales is supported by European Union, the Welsh Assembly Government and hundreds of companies. The student placement scheme is so successful, it is now offered throughout Wales; the Computer Science Department at Swansea is the administrative centre. Because of our long experience, our students have a leading role in the scheme and its development.
Our friendly staff are committed to a student experience and education of a very high standard and our department has over 40 years of commitment to the best international standards of university education. We have excellent employment prospects in an ever growing and changing computing and ICT industry. Our excellent transferable skills open doors to careers in all sectors of the economy. Our university has a high success rate for graduation, low drop out rate, and excellent student support.
