About the School of Computing

The School of Computing which is based at the Jordanstown* campus aims to provide students with a supportive environment for their studies, thus providing them with the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Graduate Employability

Our courses are kept relevant and up-to-date by engaging with professional bodies such as the British Computer Society, maintaining strong links with the computing sector locally, and integrating our research into our curriculum development.

All courses have an integrated placement year, which has proven to be invaluable in helping graduates to secure professional employment locally, nationally and globally.

Core teaching competencies

The School has core teaching competencies at undergraduate level: in the areas of interactive multimedia design; computing technologies; computing science; and software engineering. The School also offers a popular fast-track part-time undergraduate degree in Computing Systems.

Research excellence

Research within the School focuses around two main research groups:

These are complimentary groups, which often collaborate to apply theoretical models in a real world context, thus having a direct and positive impact on our society.

Professional accreditation

The BCS (British Computer Society), the Chartered Institute for IT, accredits our computing courses.
