What is Bachelor of Science (Hons) Computer Science International?

This programme is designed as a four-year honours degree in core computing & programming skills with a key international and globalisation focus. It offers graduates highly sought IT industry skills including internationalisation, a foreign language, as well as a very strong aptitude for IT. The emphasis of this programme is primarily in computer science, which includes modules on internationalisation and globalisation. The programme will be offered as a joint international bachelor’s degree with a number of international colleges world-wide. The initial partners include the University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt, Germany and the University of Applied Sciences in Oulu, Finland. The foreign languages taught in this programme are currently Chinese and German. Students are required to select one of these, which are taught through years 1 - 3. International and certain EU students whose native language is not English, will be taught English for academic purposes during the same period. Students on this programme will be immersed in the study of computer science both through in-depth treatment of the mathematical and algorithmic basis of the discipline, and a practical exposure to the methods of computer science and software engineering. There is an emphasis on practical skills with specific time dedicated to laboratory and project work. Specialised streams involving in-depth internationalisation and globalisation, in conjunction with core computer science, will incorporate modules such as a foreign language, technical communications, global citizenship, software localisation, international project management and global user interface design. Graduates of the programme are equipped to work in international organisations due to an understanding of globalisation, internationalisation, organisational structures and the role of computing in organisations. As well as learning key skills in computer science, graduates will also have learned many key skills including a foreign language, project management, legal studies, software localisation and professional ethics in specialised core modules. They will have the necessary skills to integrate quickly into software and IT companies and to work effectively within a variety of different teams in such organisations.

Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
