Offering qualifications in subjects from creative technologies to electronics.

The School of Computing and Digital Media offers cutting-edge academic and professional qualifications in subjects including computing, creative technologies, journalism, mathematics and electronics. Graduates of our computing and digital media degrees have gone on to forge successful careers as graphic designers, network and software engineers, journalists, analysts and university lecturers.

Our IT and computing students benefit from some of the most advanced Cisco labs in London. Students on our digital media degrees can also take advantage of our £100,000 journalism newsroom, which was opened by former editor of The Guardian, Alan Rusbridger. This state-of-the-art facility includes 40 computers equipped with the latest design software, large screen TVs and a mobile TriCaster that allows students to host outside radio and TV broadcasts while streaming live footage to the internet.

Learn from experts in their field

Teaching in the School is delivered by a team of dedicated and highly qualified lecturers with a wealth of industry experience. London Met has also been recognised by leading technology company Cisco for providing the best delivery of the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) curriculum in Europe. In addition to the University’s own team of experienced academics, students have access to guest speakers through regular events and workshops. In the past we’ve welcomed experts from companies including Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, O2 and Blackberry, as well as leading newsreaders George Alagiah, Jon Snow and Krishnan Guru Murthy.
