What our students said
BSc (Hons) Computing Science
Read Andrew's storyI will always have fond memories of Stirling as a place with beautiful surroundings, where I completed a degree in something I loved, met lots of new people, and worked with a great team of teaching and support staff.
Our industry and global connections
We have strong links with Scottish industry through its Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) – with members from both Scottish and international companies such as IBM, HSBC and Adobe.
We are a member of The Data Lab, which is an Innovation Centre with the aim of developing data science talent and skills required by the industry in Scotland.
Our MSc Big Data has been developed in partnership with global and local companies who employ data scientists. HSBC have a development centre in Stirling and have provided some very interesting Big Data projects to our students. Amazon’s development centre in Scotland is close by in Edinburgh.
We also have a programme of invited speakers from industry who give the students a chance to ask questions of people who are doing data science every day. Recent companies have included MongoDB, SkyScanner and HSBC.
