Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Summary... header image

This programme will deliver all the fundamentals in Computer Science with a strong emphasis on Internationalisation and Globalisation from the outset. Students are taught IT skills early on that are required in the International IT industry. This will include not only core software design and development skills, but also highly sought-after international skills such as global citizenship, software localisation, entrepreneurship, a foreign language and creating webinars.

In third year, you may undertake an International Industrial Placement and gain valuable international work experience in an IT company. This helps to emphasize the importance of globalisation in the workplace. The School has strong links with global industry companies such as Google, Microsoft and IBM amongst others, through sponsorship, work placement and project co-operation.

In the final year, you will have the opportunity to specialise your knowledge and skills in a variety of areas such as Enterprise Systems Development or Applied Intelligence or Digital Games Development & Simulation.
