Our Staff

We know that computing is one of the most exciting sectors to work in because we’ve been there. One of the best things about our staff is the breadth of industry experience we bring to our teaching. Our sector expertise ranges from programming systems analysts for international futures trading houses, to electrical engineering, satellite communications and website design.

You will train on our two floors of modern computer suites, equipped with the latest software. The department can also boast its own specialist electrical circuit design software, multisims and satellite tracking equipment.

Working with Other Organisations

Every single student in this department will research, apply for and carry out work experience in an area that interests them. This is made possible by our fantastic links with businesses and organisations such as Toyota and London Transport. You will also benefit from activities with cutting edge companies like Atkins and specialist industry speakers.

Your Future: Computing extends to every area of the economy and no other skill is so uniquely placed to allow you to map your own future. Whether you long to be part of a large international company, or the key person in a small organisation, computing skills can take you wherever you want to go. All our courses give you the option of pursuing your education or entering employment.
