See entry requirements for full details and eligibility.
The innovators of the 21st century will think across arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth of skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.
This course combines in-depth subject specialism in computer science with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. In conjunction with your computer science studies, you will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into innovative solutions, which may include plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.
This course gives you the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and continually expanding field and to influence its future development. Computer science is having a huge impact on the technology that is shaping our society and the way that we live. Our course is designed to give you the skills and knowledge you will need, combining the fundamentals of the subject with exploration of its diverse applications.
You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines, such as psychology, anthropology and business and management. Each subject contributes a different perspective on a challenge as you identify needs and develop ideas. By drawing on your unique ideas and views on the world, you will learn from your subject and other students to develop innovative solutions together.
By the time you graduate you will have a portfolio of work ranging from live client projects to planning your own entrepreneurial venture. You will have learned how to evaluate the potential of your product or service and how to finance it, and you will have a network of peers and advisers who have worked with you along the way.
