About

The Computing course at Teesside University prepares you for a wide range of careers in the computing industry. Whether you are a graduate looking at the first step on the career ladder or a current employee looking to turn your industry experience into qualifications, this course is flexible enough to meet your needs. It is ideal if you already work in the field of computing and want to develop new skills. But equally relevant if you are a recent graduate wanting to develop the technical knowledge and understanding to progress to your chosen career. You can expand your existing knowledge and develop new skills in areas including:

  • systems hardware
  • hardware
  • networks
  • web
  • programming
  • IT management.

To enhance your employability and career prospects further, we offer you the opportunity to complete a six month internship within industry before completing your master’s project. Internships are optional and competitive but if interested we work with you to find an appropriate industry match and prepare you for interview.

Programme Structure

The bespoke nature of this course means that what you study can really vary. We guide and advise you on planning your course to ensure that it is cohesive and relevant to your needs. You may choose to take a predominately technical approach or to blend technical subjects with project management and design subjects.

Whatever subjects you choose, you learn how to make reasoned, critical decisions for selecting or implementing appropriate computer-based solutions with a business focus. You will leave the course with the technical and interpersonal skills to make an immediate contribution to major projects at the leading edge of computer applications. There is also the potential for you to go on to study for a PhD in a specialist area.
