  • BSc (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
The creation, transmission and storage of huge volumes of electronic data is one of the defining features of our age. It brings us untold benefits but it also exposes businesses, governments and individuals to repeated threats such as cyber theft, sabotage and blackmail. As a result, societies increasingly rely on the expertise and innovations of information security specialists, without which many aspects of our daily lives would grind to a halt. This three-year programme with a specialism in information security will give you the skills you need to pursue a computer science career, and the knowledge and practical experience to manage and improve the smooth running and security of systems, applications and organisations. You will learn from leading researchers in the field, covering topics such as cryptography, computer security, fraud detection and the study of how security itself can best be managed. All this will be underpinned by a solid grounding in the fundamentals of computing and all the essentials of application development, from programming to software engineering, databases to web development, computer graphics to robotics. From the outset you will be experimenting with programming games, robots, Gadgeteer kits, Subversion, JUnit testing, Scrum-based Agile software and more, in our well-equipped laboratories. Alongside our core modules you will have the flexibility to tailor your studies to your own interests in your final year. We are a highly respected, research-focused department with a friendly approach and award-winning teaching. We offer a summer work placement programme and a dedicated personal adviser to guide you through your studies. You will also be welcome to join our Computing Society, a thriving community of more than 400 computer enthusiasts from across the College. We are one of only seven departments in the UK to hold the Athena SWAN bronze award for our commitment to increasing female participation in computer science. You will graduate with an advanced knowledge of computer science and information security theories and methodologies, as well as transferrable skills such as team working, communication, time management and self-motivation. + Gain a solid grounding in all the main aspects of computer science but with a career-focused specialism in information security. + Enjoy a varied and flexible curriculum, informed by cutting-edge research and current industrial needs. + Join an elite department, ranked 11th in the UK for the quality of its research output (Research Exercise Framework 2014). + 97% of our students said this programme is well organised, and 92% said it is intellectually stimulating (National Student Survey 2015). + This programme is accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE).

The staff were seriously amazing, I’ve never felt so well supported and encouraged by teachers before. The union was also very friendly and dedicated to representing and helping students, with great services available. In terms of nightlife, you can grab a nice pint in Egham or on campus, or head out to Windsor or into London for clubbing. But it's a pretty quiet place - definitely don't come here for a party, but that's not everyone's style.

    In terms of studies, it's a really good university. The staff is very friendly. I'm not living in uni accomodation so I don't really have experience in that but if you're the kind of person who is going to be commuting, I wouldn't recommend it. A lot of party and just society events start after 7 and they are really fun. You don't have to party until 3 am but if you're there a college night bus runs for really cheap so safe and convinient.
