B.Sc. (Hons) in Computer Science
University of Ulster
5 year part-time course
This course is offered in a part-time mode to accommodate day release from employment. Part-time classes are scheduled during the daytime.
Part-time study begins at Level 5 (equivalent to year 2 full-time) and is therefore aimed at students who have completed studies at HND or HNC or an equivalent level to ensure that the duration of their part-time degree is not extended.
This degree course seeks to give students a sound foundation in each of the main aspects of computing and at the same time provides opportunities for students to specialise in one or more subject areas. Adopting what would be described as a ‘breadth first’ approach, the degree is designed to provide the firm foundation across the full range of the subject. The later stages of the course allow students to choose from a range of advanced optional modules to follow individual interests.
Level 5 subjects include algorithms and data structures, object-oriented programming, networks and operating systems, and human-computer interaction.
At Level 6, students will complete a dissertation in addition to a number of compulsory and optional modules. The project involves the analysis, design, implementation, testing and evaluation of a substantial computer-related problem.
