Computing courses are based at the University’s main site, Kedleston Road. We have eight dedicated computing laboratories, including two open-plan software development studios, one networking laboratory and five general purpose computing labs. All labs contain dual-screen, multiprocessor computers equipped with a variety of industry-standard commercial and open source software, and there are dedicated technicians to provide support. You can also borrow equipment, such as video cameras, mobile devices, laptops and various hardware. Your learning environment replicates a real workplace, even the layout of the computing rooms is modelled on industry. You can hone your skills in games programming studios supported by Microsoft and Nintendo, a dedicated CISCO networks laboratory, a computer forensic lab and general computing labs. As a Microsoft IT Academy, we offer official Microsoft training and exams at a discounted rate, plus access to online resources and professional tools.
