- A majority of UHI's employer partners recruit from our BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology programme and they indicate that our graduates have an excellent understanding of the design and technical process of projects and are able to enter industry and be effective contributors to their architectural practices from day one
- In years three and four of the BSc (Hons) Computing you can choose to study for a generic degree in computing or you can specialise in software development or technical support. This will allow you to exit at the end of the fourth year with a BSc (Hons) Computing (Networking and Cybersecurity) or BSc (Hons) Computing (Software Engineering)
- Our BSc (Hons) Interactive Media offers students the experience of working on exciting live projects with real world clients
Rachel MacLeod, BSc Architectural Technology
"The curriculum sets students up with a clear understanding of building and design processes by linking course work with live projects. Since graduating I have kept in contact with staff and students at the university and watched the course evolve into what I think is a unique learning experience, where practice professionals and students work together to produce graduates that meet the demands of industry."
