If you secure a place on one of our computer science degrees through Clearing, your programme of study will begin with core modules in areas such as artificial intelligence, networking and computer graphics. As you progress into year two, you will build knowledge in data mining, data structures, networking and design patterns. In your final year, there will be a range of optional modules to choose from, alongside completing an individual project that will demonstrate your understanding of computer science.

One of the many advantages of studying at Salford is that we also offer the opportunity to specialise in areas of computer science that may be more applicable to your career goals. For example, our software engineering Clearing courses focus on how software systems are embedded in all aspects of daily life – from commerce and industry to healthcare and communication. And with our cyber security course, we will equip you with the specialist knowledge required to defend against data breaches and to keep systems secure.
