The School of Computing at the BACU offers innovative specialty programs in the significant areas of Cybersecurity, Software EngineeringArtificial Intelligence (& Data Analytics), and General Computing. We have built on our faculty member’s long experience to provide up to date applied education with different delivery models that is of national importance. We provide students a rich immersion in academic study, personal growth, skills expertise and work flexibility. We train students to become the next computer scientists who can adapt to constantly changing demands and scenarios.

We currently offer two major types of degrees: a 2 year higher diploma degree, HND (with UK Pearson BTEC) and a 4-year Bachelors Program, BSc (Hons) (Level 6-Top-Up with Teeside University, UK).

Pathways & Majors

Higher National Diplomas & Bachelors Programs

  • The UK Pearson Higher National Diploma (HND) is a Level 4 and Level 5 qualification made up of 240 credits. It is usually studied full time over two years, or part time over four years. The Total qualification time = 2,400 hours and the Total guided learning hours = 960 hours.

  • On the other hand, the Bachelors (BSc (Hons) Computing) degree course is designed to give students in-depth skills & knowledge to build a successful career in computing. The course encompasses the core principles of computer science including computer programming, computer networking, mobile computing, algorithms, data structures and more. With unparalleled flexibility, the course allows students to forge their own pathway after a founder year 1 to specialist in: AI & Data Analytics, Cybersecurity, Software Engineering or general computing. It is usually studied full time over four years.

Each pathway offers different program outcomes & objectives however the general aims of all degrees and programs in Computing are:

  • To equip students with computing skills, knowledge and understanding in order to achieve high performance in the global computing environment

  • To provide education and training for a range of careers in computing, including network engineering, software engineering, data analytics, security, intelligent systems, applications development and testing

  • To provide insight and understanding of international computing operations and the opportunities and challenges presented by a globalised market place

  • To give students knowledge and understanding of culturally diverse organisations, cross-cultural issues, diversity and values

  • To give students opportunities students to enter or progress in employment in computing, or to progress to higher education qualifications (Masters, PhD)

  • To provide opportunities for those students with a global outlook to aspire to international career pathways by achieving an internationally recognised professional qualification

  • To provide opportunities for students to achieve vendor accredited certifications

  • To allow flexibility of study and to meet local or specialist needs
