Computer Science with Enterprise BSc with Year in Industry

Please note, this course is being advertised subject to approval.

The computing industry is one of the largest employers in the UK: either directly employing computer scientists in direct roles, or indirectly using their skills and knowledge within other job sectors. Many small start-up companies develop new products. And many large companies begin as small ones and the latter are the consequence of the entrepreneurial spirit of individuals or small teams.

This course is unique in that it trains you in both computer science and commercial skills, including some of those skills needed for creating a start-up company. It is often important that a computer scientist understands how to take an idea or product to market. For this you will need to understand how an entrepreneur behaves and the planning required to judge whether a product is suitable for market. You will need to research who your competitors are and whether you need to protect your idea with a patent.

Other essential aspects of the course include how to create a business plan, how to gain finance and how to market your product. You will learn how to start up a venture, how to create a culture within a group and how to be a leader. There will be the opportunity for you to work with businesses, meet entrepreneurs and even start up your own enterprise.
