Career opportunities

Quote from Dr Duncan Hull

Here at Manchester, we encourage and support all our students to gaining industrial experience during their study.

This not only enables them to broaden and deepen their skills by combining academic knowledge with practical experience in the workplace, but also connects them with potential employers to help shape their future career.

Dr Duncan Hull / Lecturer & Employability Tutor
Increasingly, employers are seeking graduates with high-level computing skills, and the ability to apply them in innovative ways to solve the problems facing their organisations. Opportunities exist in fields as diverse as finance, films and games, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, consumer products, and public services - virtually all areas of business and society.

Employers, from large multinational firms such as EA Electronic Arts , IBM and Microsoft to small local organisations, actively target our students, recognising that Manchester Computer Science graduates are equipped with the skills that enable them to excel in a whole host of positions, including many that are not traditionally associated with computing graduates.
