UWE and HP offering computing degree to boost graduate opportunities

Computing students will be offered the chance to improve their graduate jobs prospects by enrolling in a new degree programme, it emerged today (October 6th).

The University of West England (UWE) has joined forces with Hewlett Packard (HP) to deliver the UWE HP enterprise computing degree from 2011 onwards.

Offering a four-year study course, including internships with HP and its partners, the project will see 30 students per year improving their employability.

"The overall aim of the collaboration between HP and UWE is to produce industry-ready graduates who have the skills to make the leap from academia to business," said Nick Wilson, UK and Ireland managing director at HP.

HP is also planning to support an initiative to build a new state-of-the-art Education Innovation Centre at UWE as part of the ongoing shared campus facilities agreement between the two parties.

UWE claimed recently that Britons who have graduate work experience under their belts when they leave university are 16 per cent more likely to get a job than their peers.
