Key Course Facts

Course Description

This is a highly practical course which combines a thorough understanding of Computer Science with a carefully supervised programme of education theory and practice – involving regular stints in schools. For two thirds of your time you will study alongside specialising Computer Science students as you learn the main areas of the subject. These include software engineering and programming languages, as well as computer systems, computer architecture and data structures.

In addition to the technical knowledge you’ll need to pursue a career in this field, you’ll learn about the impact of technology on individuals, organisations and society. But from your first year you will also have regular experience of working, and eventually teaching, in schools, so you will emerge ready to take up a teaching career straight away. Your progression will be carefully supported and monitored by tutors who are acutely aware of how to pace your experience.

Your Computer Science modules will be delivered by the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering, while your Education modules and placements will be run by the Cass School of Education and Communities. Our Docklands campus has excellent computing resources, including specialised labs to study networking and operating system environments. You’ll be given software tools for programming, database development, computer-aided software engineering, internet access and web-based development. Our teaching staff will give you a great deal of personal attention and feedback as you get to grips with the course content. You’ll have a personal tutor to oversee your progress, module leaders for different parts of the course and tutors for each year group. You will be introduced gradually to the idea of teaching pupils Computer Science through three school based placements, the last of them for a whole term. Your first visit may involve observing and getting yourself familiar with the workings of the school. By your third-year visit, however, you will be in charge of classes. You will benefit from doing group projects with fellow students. And you’ll also gain insights from our industrial partners through guest lectures and visits to ensure you stay on top of what this fluid industry demands.
