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 AI, robotics, cloud computing, big data and lots, lots more. 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. You’re most likely passionate about the contribution computing can, and does, make to humanity, in everything from arts, culture and entertainment, to business, health, communications, and society as a whole. You’ll have the opportunity to enhance your studies by spending a year in industry – putting what you’ve learnt into practice and transforming theory into reality. About This Course This course will prepare you to work in the rapidly changing field of computing – through both your studies at UEA and your year in the workplace. Over the four-year course, 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. You’ll put yourself one step ahead of fellow graduates by spending your third year in industry. You will gain valuable work experience and have the chance to build your professional skills and confidence. In today’s competitive job market relevant work experience is a great advantage. A year in industry will not only give you first-hand knowledge of the way in which your chosen field operates, it will also greatly improve your chances of progressing within that sector as you gain valuable contacts and insight. The nature of the subject means students have a wide range of backgrounds in programming, and mathematics. Whatever your experience, the course is flexible enough to ensure you’ll achieve the level of understanding at the end of year 1 that you need to master the material on the rest of the course. In core modules, you’ll cultivate the essential skills of a computing professional, while in optional modules you’ll be able to sample some of the wide range of problems that arise in both research and industry. You will also gain transferable skills that will help your long-term development, such as working in teams, project management and presenting ideas. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
