Offering qualifications in subjects from creative technologies to electronics.
Our School of Computing and Digital Media offers high-quality teaching underpinned by strong industry-relevant research. The School provides undergraduate, postgraduate and professional courses that can prepare you for a successful career within one of three subject areas:
- Computer science and applied computing – including computing, software engineering and cyber security courses
- Communications technology and mathematics – including systems engineering, robotics, electronics and mathematics courses
- Creative technologies and digital media – including film, media, games, journalism and music courses
Our courses are constantly reviewed and updated to ensure they're meeting the demands of employers and many have work-related learning opportunities built into the curriculum.
The School is mainly based at our Holloway Road campus, with a small number of courses taught at our campus in Aldgate.
Partnerships in the UK and beyond
The School has established partnerships with other higher education institutions both nationally and internationally – we have partner institutions in countries such as Nepal, Trinidad, Sri Lanka, Spain and Germany as well as in the UK.
Celebrating success and showcasing student work
The School presents an annual summer show where students have the opportunity to showcase their work to the general public at the end of the academic year. The show features a wide range of student work including games, high-tech toys, cyber security and electronics demos, music, films and animations. It is an opportunity for students to develop networking and presentation skills, enhance their portfolios, liaise with industry professionals and show their friends and family what they have achieved. Film students also screen their work at the BFI on London’s South Bank.

Our successful Cisco Academy has been in operation since 1998 – it is one of the UK's first Cisco academies with some of the most advanced networking labs in the country. More than 5,000 students have graduated from our Cisco Academy since 1998.
