Computing is a field as vast as it is versatile, and you may already know what you want to focus on. Our diverse degree programmes mean that you can identify a specialist area right from the start – ranging from cyber security and digital forensics to software engineering and games development or computing science, digital media, sound design and creative computing. You’ll be taught by professors who are industry experts. Among them are specialists who literally wrote the book on certain aspects of cyber crime and groundbreaking online security.

It’s why the School of Computing actively invests in developing employment opportunities for students.




    Graduate Apprenticeships

    Graduate Apprenticeships (GA) provide you the opportunity to be in full-time employment whilst also studying for an Honours Degree. You can either look for a new job or enrol through your current employer, and there are no fees to pay for you or the employer for the duration of the course.


    Graduate Apprenticeships are designed to benefit both the apprentice and Scottish businesses.  What you do in work counts towards your degree, allowing you to concurrently develop your academic knowledge and skills development in the workplace.

    Women into Computing

    From our Dean to students, lecturers to office staff, our school has strong female representation at all levels. It has also been awarded an Athena SWAN Bronze departmental award in recognition of its efforts in this area.

    Considering a career in computing but not sure where to start? Why not connect with others through initiatives like Equate Scotland or Girl Geeks Scotland, both of which are closely associated with the University.

    Associate Student Programme

    Being an Associate Student is an alternative way to complete a four-year degree where your first two years are spent at college getting an HND. The remaining two years are at university where you work towards gaining a bachelor’s degree.

    After 2 years at college, Matt went straight into the 3rd year of BEng (Hons) Computer Security and Forensics.
