This Computing course runs in 2016/17.
This is computing for the 21st Century! This course represents a highly practical approach to the core topics in computing with additional focus on web technologies and mobile computing systems and software development design.
The course is highly focused on the practical application of current and future technologies within the modern computing industry. A broad set of transferable skills are taught and practised throughout the programme, which is built around real world problem solving. The core topics for the course include web and mobile systems development, database creation and management, rapid application development and user centred design.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- Accreditation by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional; partially meeting the Academic Requirement for registration as a Chartered Scientist; and, on behalf of the Engineering Council, partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer;
- teaching staff who have been internationally recognised for innovations in teaching and learning and who are active in internationally rated research work in fields such as web development, pervasive computing, artificial intelligence, distributed systems, and computing for the creative industries;
- studying a course focused on practical work, using state-of-the-art technologies and design techniques to help develop a personal portfolio of work. This portfolio can then be displayed at the Coventry annual computing film show to a large audience of staff, students and industry contacts;
- the opportunity to apply for an industrial placement year working with a technology company. Companies that students have worked for in the past include: Microsoft UK Ltd, Intel, Accenture as well as a range of medium sized companies in web, media and the creative industries;
- free access to Microsoft software for study and development purposes as part of the Microsoft Academy scheme;
- the opportunity to take part in our IBM mentoring scheme, as well as numerous international experiences.

Accreditations shall be renewed in accordance with the accreditors standard review process and subject to the University maintaining the same high standards of course delivery.WHAT WILL I LEARN?
A computing graduate will expect to learn the key topics of interest within the computing industry, including programming, designing for usability, web and mobile technologies, systems analysis and application development methodologies. Each of these topics will have a practical focus, designed to teach you how to apply the latest technologies to a wide range of modern day issues.
The first year of study will cover the fundamentals of computing and computer principles including mathematics, programming, computer architecture, usability and information systems. These fundamentals can then be applied to larger scoped problems within the computing discipline in year two.
In your final year, you will have the opportunity to specialise your degree by choosing from a selection of optional modules. This will enable you to shape your learning to the career you envisage having and allow you to study topics you are interested in.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
Throughout the course, great emphasis is placed on the practical development of work, with a significant portion of your time being spent on assisted lab tasks, seminars and project based classes. During these you will have the opportunity to work with new technology to help develop new design solutions. You will also be provided with a personal tutor who will review and discuss your progress with you and be available for advice throughout your studies.
You will work with staff on real-world computing and design problems as you would in commercial, professional or research practice; this means that you can develop professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
If you are interested in part-time study (which is taught during the day) please contact the Part-time Admissions team on +44 (0) 24 7765 4321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information, but please note that not all courses have a part-time option.HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 20%; coursework, essays, project and group work 45%; practical exams e.g. presentations, tests, etc.35%.
A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.TEACHING CONTACT HOURS
In a typical week you will have up to 17 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:
Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 6 hours of tutorials (or later, individual project supervision) each week
Medium group teaching: 5 hours of practical laboratory classes each week
Large group teaching: 6 hours of lectures each week
Personal study: 23 hours studying and project work in your own time each week, including some guided study using handouts, online activities, etc."
