The applications of computers and computing continue to grow in industry, in commerce and in pure and applied research. Our graduates have moved into all of these areas for their first employment – joining computer manufacturers, software houses and IT departments – while others have undertaken postgraduate study and research. Hull graduates have recently gained employment with, among others, Sony, the BBC, Government Communications Headquarters, Logica, Dell Computers, Fujitsu, and News International.
In designing our degree programmes, we aim to provide you with a good theoretical and practical training which will interest potential employers and equip you with the tools to undertake further study.
The University has an excellent Careers Service, which gives individual advice to students about possible careers. It also arranges recruiting visits by prospective employers during your ﬁnal year. The University does consistently well in the ‘graduate employment’ category of national surveys, and it has one of the lowest graduate unemployment rates in the UK.
Research is an important part of the department’s academic work, and there are opportunities for graduates to undertake research leading to an MSc or PhD, or both. Current research interests in the department include Dependable Systems, Intelligent Systems, and Simulation and Visualization.
