About Computing and Information Systems at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

Computing is changing our world: the way we work, 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.

Our FdSc Computing and Information Systems studies the principles and technologies underpinning the systems that are driving this change.

It provides an opportunity to learn about these directly through a combination of work-based learning and in the classroom. The field of computer science offers a wealth of opportunity across a range of specialist fields. 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.

Upon completion of this course you will:

  • exhibit an understanding of the knowledge and concepts of Computer Science, incorporating the theory, principles and operation of the underlying technologies and methodologies
  • apply the methods and principles of Computer Science in the analysis, design, and implementation of solutions in a select range of application domains in information systems, software and communications
  • implement and administer organisation wide information technology and communication systems
  • work effectively as a team member and to develop as a professional within the discipline and as a technically able practitioner within an organisation
  • develop as an independent learner and reflective practitioner
  • recognise the professional, moral and ethical standards of the Computing Profession and to be aware of the responsibility in the use and development of applications which impinge on the working and personal lives of users and other professionals.

You will also be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • essential facts, concepts, principles and theories relating to computer science and computer applications
  • the technical properties of hardware, software, information systems and their use and evaluation in a variety of application domains
  • the role of design and planning in a computing context and how to act in a systematic and organised way when applying computing analysis, methodologies and techniques
  • how to identify a problem within the computing domain and develop specialist knowledge within that area, provide appropriate analysis, develop potential solutions and evaluate their effectiveness
  • the scope, depth and the limitations of your knowledge and how to access and interpret information resources.

Once you complete this course, you may be eligible to transfer to Year 3 of our BSc (Hons) Computing and Information Systems at University Centre Peterborough.

What students think about Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts

    Testimonial from Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "The UK has a long and distinguished history of art and design. At the same time, it has a lot of modern and avant-garde academic and industry knowledge and experience. This deeply attracted me to study in the UK and apply to the MA Illustration and Book Arts course at the Cambridge School of Art with its 160-year history. It is a very forward-looking subject, combining new technologies, traditional skills and art theories.

    I hope to improve my creative thinking, illustration skills and understanding of book art through the course. I would like to interpret traditional culture and show the world we live in by applying creativity and new techniques.

    I started the autumm trimester online due to the travel situation and am going to Cambridge in January. The MA course is very interesting but challenging at the same time. There are both theoretical and practical modules, such as Sequence and Series. I have to do a lot of academic reading with new academic terms.

    My tutors are very helpful and encouraging. After a few weeks of study, I can clearly see my own progress and achievements, in academic English reading as well as the understanding of theoretical concepts. I have tried to read extensively, including journal articles and art books."

    Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management

    Testimonial from Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "I joined ARU two and half years ago and I made it my mission to get involved in everything I could.

    In the very first few months of university, I took part in ARU’s intern programme, working in the Faculty of Business and Law, which gave me the chance to develop my skills, get mentoring and grow both personally and professionally.

    Because ARU is such a vibrant environment, it was easy to get involved with more and I soon became a Student Ambassador, working during Open Days. Working closely with ARU’s staff made me feel so supported and encouraged that I even found the courage to challenge myself and deliver student life talks for the university and co-deliver welcome talks with faculty staff.

    I was also a course rep, which has now led me to represent the whole faculty. This is excellent for my CV as well making sure our students' voices are heard.

    All of these opportunities have built up and helped me believe in myself, in my abilities and, most importantly, boost my confidence. Of course, they are excellent for professional progression and my CV, too."

    Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health

    Testimonial from Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Moving to a foreign country for me was extremely challenging, but right now, I am proud of my decision. I am from Lithuania, and my trip started from there. It was not easy to say goodbye to my family, friends and hobbies, but it was a new beginning in my life.

    The first day at university was scary, but at the same time, exciting. I didn't know anyone, and I was not very confident about my English level. Freshers’ Week helped me to meet new people, understand what I should expect from life in the UK and find new activities which I would do for the entire year. Day by day I started to make more connections and friends who became a part of my life at ARU.

    I spent the first month adapting to my new beginning. I had to buy lots of stuff for my room and kitchen. Moreover, I started to explore the city which would be my home for three years. Also, I met my tutors for the first time, and I started to get acquainted with the UK study system. At the beginning, for me, understanding the British accent was most challenging. I started to worry: could I do this? I was shy to ask or to say anything during class, even when I knew the right answer.

    After a few weeks, things started to get better. I started to understand my tutor better and get involved in the class. Finally, I had to comprehend that it was my new life and it was set to be a unique and unforgettable experience.
