Ed Bird

Lecturer and Deputy Dean

Ed began his career in management before studying computing and working in software development. He then went on to study postgraduate qualifications in Computer Science and an MBA, and has managed computing departments in the education sector.

Reflecting upon University College Birmingham’s new Computing degree, Ed said the course is ideal for those looking to enter a broad range of career paths in IT, or to move onto postgraduate study or into education.

“This course has been carefully designed to align to the top ten skills currently being demanded by employers and IT firms,” he said. “A degree in computing, as a STEM subject, is one of the most in-demand, well-paid graduate outcomes for university students.”

Ed said the standout features of this course are the facilities, choice of modules and the learning experience at University College Birmingham.

“Not only will you be taught by very experienced and highly qualified staff, but you will also benefit from having access to brand new, purpose-built facilities and our long-term commitment to this subject area,” he said.

“You will be learning in state-of-the-art facilities, using industry standard software to develop very relevant, up-to-date skills. You will also have support from our CASE team to help you with writing your assignments.”
