Bachelor of Science with Honours in Computing Science


University of Glasgow

Bachelor of Science with Honours in Computing Science

Computing Science is the study of information, computation and computational thinking. It is wide-ranging, from programming, programming languages and engineering large software systems, to the design and evaluation of human/computer interfaces, algorithms, computer and network systems, as well as information retrieval and storage systems.

The programme will be a broad computing science programme whose main themes are security, connectivity, mobility, and usability. It gives you the opportunity to study a broad range of core computing science topics including Cyber Security, Mobile Human Computer Interaction, Multimedia Systems & Applications.

Graduates from Computing Science will have good prospects for working in a variety of careers within the IT industry. These can range from highly technical, systems-level development such as application developers, consultants as well as many other IT-related roles. Some of our students also go on to do research degrees. This is also a suitable background for becoming a teacher of Computing or, indeed, to work in other areas where logical problem-solving and system design skills are valued.

“OIP is an eye-opener for me as I have not been exposed to other culture and ways of life. It is a good experience to be able to work with current students in Glasgow and sharing knowledge” -- Randall Tan, Mechatronics

“It was an unforgettable and eye-opening experience to see the lovely culture of Glasgow; the friendly people and slower pace of life. I was also in awe of the serenity and breath taking beauty of Scotland. It will be forever etched in my mind.” -- Ziyi Poh, Mechanical Design Engineering

“Sharing the summer of 2012 in Glasgow was definitely the highlight of the year. Being in a land where the sun rises at 4am and sets at 10pm, I was amazed by what Glasgow had to offer. The University, too, was a sight to behold, with its exterior representing a castle as though carved out from the movies. I am very proud to be a student of the University, and words just cannot describe how fortunate I was to have had this experience.’ – Khairul Anwar Bin Ahmad Samson, Mechatronics
