At a time when big business is increasingly relying on technology, companies are eager to employ skilled graduates who understand computing technology and know how it can be used to help businesses succeed. This course will enhance your computing expertise and technical skills while developing your awareness of the business environment, putting you at an advantage in today’s competitive jobs market.

You will begin by studying the fundamentals of computing before investigating in your second year how businesses use computer systems and technology. In your final year, you will focus on key industry themes, including IT strategy, emerging technologies and managing change. A choice of option modules will allow you to hone the technical skills you will need to deal with a wide range of business problems.

Throughout the course, you will enhance your employability by learning a range of key competencies, including building websites, designing information systems and writing code to generate reports that will allow you to make strategic predictions for businesses. Learning how to communicate information and ideas clearly and in a compelling way will be an important element of the course. Coupled with proven skills in data and information analysis, you will graduate with the confidence and ability to shape business decisions at the highest level.    

Our partnership with global communications technology giant Avaya brings the company’s cutting-edge expertise to the heart of Headingley Campus. You will have direct access to the Avaya Breeze, Avaya Aura and Avaya Equinox platforms as you explore the real-time optimisation of new middleware. This facility forms the company’s regional base, meaning you will be part of a community that includes potential employers who use Avaya’s products, enabling you to start building your professional network while you study.

We are committed to providing you with hands-on experience. This course is all about learning and doing, so you will combine theoretical knowledge with developing practical skills in a range of areas including building dashboards, analysing data and designing and coding websites. You will also learn from industry experts who will deliver guest lectures focusing on how advances on computing technology are revolutionising the world of business.

You will learn from specialist tutors, and you will be encouraged to challenge them with new ideas and projects. With their support, you will cultivate an enquiring mind that is primed to analyse, to question and to seek out answers.
