About

Computer scientists don’t use computers like most of us do. Instead, they use them as tools to address important scientific questions, and to solve real world-problems. Computing can be amazingly diverse, including computer design, graphics, artificial intelligence, gaming, software engineering, programming and applications development.

The Computer Science course at Anglia Ruskin University has been designed to offer you a wide choice of career options when you graduate. As you study, you can choose to focus on the core elements of computer science, or to specialise in areas such as software development, mobile applications, computer security, cloud computing, network administration and technical support.

Careers

Computing forms the backbone of almost every organisation. When you graduate from our course, you’ll have skills that are in demand in a huge range of industries. You could work in telecommunications, aerospace, security, financial services, marketing, public service, the creative industries and teaching.

By choosing particular modules, you’ll gain relevant knowledge that after graduation will enable you to apply for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) status. This will add extra skills and a recognised certification to your CV.
