Computer Science and Software Engineering

The good news is that the IT sector has emerged from recession and all the economic indicators for this sector are looking positive. There are above average levels of confidence and IT investment is once again increasing. Computer science graduates are, however, employed across all sectors of the economy and the public sector cuts will make the graduate market place highly competitive for the foreseeable future.

Time therefore to invest in some research and the development of your job search skills!

Employers are interested in both the technical skills gained during a computer science degree and the non-technical transferable skills that students develop on their course and through work experience.
