Computing Science
Computing Science is concerned with the programming of computers. The programming language used depends on the application and the hardware used. A major application area is the Internet, which makes use of distributed personal computers, all in communication with each other. In this course a number of computing languages are introduced and the operation of computing systems is considered with particular emphasis on the Internet. In addition, professional skills are also developed.

The curriculum for the Pathway Programme is modelled on the first year of the BSc (Honours) degree in Computing Science at Newcastle University and Northumbria University.. The first two years of all our Computing Science degrees are common, making transfer between them possible at the end of either stage 1 or 2.Your final degree title is dependent on your choice of modules in Stage 3. The final degree you can qualify to are:-

  • Computing Science BSc Honours
  • Computing Science with Industrial Placement BSc Honours
  • Computing Science with Industrial Placement (Networked Systems and Internet Technologies) BSc Honours
  • Computing Science (Games and Virtual Environment) BSc Honours
  • Computing Science with Industrial Placement (Games and Virtual Environment) BSc Honours
  • Computing Science (Software Engineering) BSc Honours
  • Computing Science with Industrial Placement (Software Engineering) BSc Honours
The following subjects form the material for the first year of the Pathway Programme:-
  • Java programming
  • HTML programming
  • JavaScript programming
  • Computing systems
  • Discrete mathematics for computing
  • IT professional issues
The University brochure contains the details of the subjects taught in the subsequent years of the degree at Newcastle and Northumbria University.

Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and we at ECube Global College, with Newcastle University and Northumbria University aims to produce computer scientists who can keep abreast with new developments. In choosing to study Computing Science you are embarking upon a challenging career in which you can make a major contribution to the world in which we live.
