Course summary

Overview Learn to program the future and prepare to excel in a range of computing fields, from the information systems of banks and businesses, to the creativity of gaming, web usability and rapid prototyping, to artificial intelligence (AI). You’ll also explore machine learning, computer vision, graphics, computational biology, data science and speech processing, as well as software and systems engineering. This course is ideal if you’re a digital native who already lives and breathes computing, whether it’s through coding your own apps and websites, designing your own games, or building your own hardware. Our students have a wide range of prior experience, with most being competent programmers who understand the underlying principles of the subject and can adopt a logical, systematic approach to developing solutions for real world problems. About This Course This four-year degree with a year abroad will give you the chance to study your subject in depth, preparing you for an exciting career working with the rapidly changing technology of computing. Our students have a range of programming and mathematical backgrounds, so the course is structured to enable you to achieve the same level of understanding across the fundamental areas of the subject by the end of your first year. We emphasise the importance of practical skills, and our core modules will help you develop the skills essential to a career as a computing professional, while our optional modules will allow you to get to grips with the wide range of questions that arise in both research and industry. You’ll acquire a strong grounding in the theory of computing science, as well as gaining experience and skills in software engineering and problem solving. You’ll become a competent programmer in a range of modern general purpose languages such as Java, Python, C and C++. You’ll explore the underlying principles of the subject and learn to adopt a logical, systematic approach to developing solutions to real-world problems. You’ll also benefit from our particular expertise in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, computer vision, graphics, computational biology, data science and speech processing, as well as software engineering and systems engineering. In your third year, you’ll get the academic and personal experience of a lifetime when you live and study abroad at one of our partner universities. Choose from universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia or Australia, each with their own strengths and research specialisms to expand your learning. This is also a chance to build contacts, learn about a different culture, and show future employers your resilience and adaptability. In your fourth year, you’ll study at Master’s level to deepen your knowledge and specialise in the areas that interest you most. You’ll explore more advanced computing subjects and strengthen your research and analysis skills. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
