Computer Science

These days, computers are an ever-present part of our lives. From mobile apps and social media to video games and autopilot, new technologies require reliable and secure software that is also easy to use.

By studying Computer Science, you will develop the skills needed to understand and develop such systems. As a result, you will see doors opening to careers in industry and research. Computer Science can be studied as a single honours degree or as a joint honours. There are also opportunities to spend a year in industry or even abroad if you wish.

Having the opportunity to discuss your course through the medium of Welsh is a huge boost to learning; by working on innovative projects in groups and as an individual, your ability to discuss and work in Welsh will be of great benefit when working with local industrial companies and consultants.

Computing graduates can be found working in many exciting areas, such as formula 1, aviation, games development and meteorology. Who knows, perhaps you’ll be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerburg! Other examples of potential jobs in the field include software developer, information technology officer, research assistant, software engineer and web designer. As you can see, there are plenty of possibilities.

“I love Computer Science, and I’m hoping to get a job designing computer programmes, especially games. My tutorials are held in Welsh and it's nice to be able to discuss the work in my first language. We inevitably have to look at study books in English, but discussing the work in Welsh makes me think more about what I'm learning which makes me more likely to remember.”
