BSc Computer Science provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of computer science combined with opportunities to specialise in a range of advanced areas. We constantly review our curriculum to ensure it remains at the leading edge. Core ideas are introduced in years one and two. You will learn the principles of algorithms and programming, covering three key paradigms: imperative, functional and object-oriented. You will also study the mathematics and statistics underpinning modern computer science; how a modern computer architecture is organised; concurrent and networked computing; and the foundations of human-computer interaction, cybersecurity and theoretical and data-driven computer science. A key component of year two is the software team project in which you work with others to develop an application for a real-world client with help from an industrial mentor. In your final year, you will choose from a range of optional units in order to specialise in selected advanced areas of computer science. You will also undertake an individual project, co-created with a supervising member of staff, with opportunities to work with industrial or research partners.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
