Why study Computer Science at NTU?

  • This course is accredited by the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT to Chartered Engineer (CEng) and IT Professional (CITP) status.
  • You will undertake a year-long paid work placement. Previous students have worked with prestigious companies such IBM.
  • Our Computer Society will enable you to share ideas with other like-minded and ambitious students in the UK.
  • You will share material in common with the BSc (Hons) Software Engineering and BSc (Hons) Computer Science (Games Technology) in your first year. This will enable you to review your studies and choose the pathway that you enjoy best.

I would recommend the Computer Science degree at NTU as it is a very good, varied course, with lots of modules to pick from. The quality of teaching is great and the facilities are very good. I would strongly recommend students make use of the placement year to get an idea of the industry and where they might like to work – it's an excellent opportunity to improve your skills for the final year.
