Our computing science degree will teach you how to design, build and analyse computer systems. Study with us and be at the forefront of the computing science industry.
Our modern world works because of computer scientists. It’s a world where the vast majority of global money exists only on computers and a computer can tell a fake smile from a real one. By 2020, an estimated 31 billion devices will be connected to the internet.
This course has a practical, problem solving approach. You’re taught how to design effective solutions to complex problems. Not only will this course give you the theory, but you’ll get lots of practical experience in how to design, build and analyse computer systems. You’ll also develop a firm understanding of how computers work as well as effective computer programming.
Our graduates are highly sought-after. We’ll help you build strong links within the industry and give you the opportunity to take part in a three-month summer placement or a one-year placement. You’ll also have the chance to experience diverse international teaching methods if you choose to study abroad.
Here at Stirling, you can enjoy access to a vibrant community. You’ll get exposure to BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT) chapters and you can join an active Computer Club that supports projects and activities for those interested in Computer Sciences, including the organisation of a Hackathon.
When you graduate with a BSc (Hons) Computer Science, you’ll be fully accredited by the British Computer Society, making you a Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) - the Society’s professional member level.
'I'm really enjoying my time at Stirling. The staff are friendly and make computing exciting and interesting. They are always willing to help. If you are frustrated about work they will put you at ease and work through it with you.'
