FD Computer Science

Course overview

This course is based at out Stam­ford cam­pus and suit­able for those who wish to fur­ther devel­op their careers in the IT indus­try. Work based learn­ing ele­ments are key through­out your stud­ies on the FdSc and, there­fore, it is ide­al for either full-time or part-time study along­side an exist­ing IT position.

The foun­da­tion degree was cre­at­ed by con­sult­ing with local employ­ers such as BGL Group (Com­pare the Mar­ket) to ensure the course meets their needs and ensures grad­u­ates have the skills required for industry.

Com­put­ing is chang­ing our world by the way we work and the way we live. To study com­put­er sci­ence is to put you at the fore­front not just of tech­no­log­i­cal change, but of social change too. This course stud­ies the prin­ci­ples and tech­nolo­gies under­pin­ning the sys­tems that are dri­ving this change.

You will study a num­ber of mod­ules designed to pro­mote your pro­fes­sion­al growth and per­son­al devel­op­ment whilst pro­vid­ing an oppor­tu­ni­ty to build upon these direct­ly through a com­bi­na­tion of work- based learn­ing projects and tra­di­tion­al class­room based study. Dur­ing your stud­ies you will be encour­aged to acquire key prac­ti­cal skills to help you build spe­cial­ist knowl­edge with­in computing.

The field of com­put­ing offers a wealth of oppor­tu­ni­ties across a range of spe­cial­ist fields and the vari­ety of course options on offer means that you can fine-tune your degree to focus on par­tic­u­lar areas of inter­est or to meet the require­ments of a favoured career.

Employ­a­bil­i­ty is a key focus with guest speak­ers from indus­try, real case stud­ies, voca­tion­al assign­ment sce­nar­ios and mod­ules that have been devel­oped along­side employ­ers. Work-based learn­ing mod­ules will encour­age you to reflect on and fur­ther devel­op the pro­fes­sion­al skills gained in the work place. Stu­dents also take part the Glob­al Day of Code and Agile Peter­bor­ough events, along with reg­u­lar ses­sions for meet­ing pro­fes­sion­als and build work­ing relationships.

The cours­es at Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre Peter­bor­ough are stud­ied in small­er class sizes com­pared with oth­er uni­ver­si­ties, a typ­i­cal class size is under 30 students.

This qual­i­fi­ca­tion is award­ed by The Open Uni­ver­si­ty and deliv­ered by Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­tre Peterborough.
