Course summary

Gain insight into how the world works and develop the practical skills to solve real-world problems and create the software systems of the future. Our Computer Science and Physics BSc will equip you with the analytical and problem solving skills to work in a variety of industries. Why choose this course?

  • Top 20 in the UK for Physics (Guardian University Guide, 2022)
  • Accreditation pathway available in Physics
  • Use a variety of industry-standard equipment including supercomputer facilities, a VR lab and a Maker Space
  • Develop core practical skills in Keele's state-of-the-art Central Science Laboratories (CSL)
  • Enhance your employability with our Computer Science work placement option
Initial modules are designed to bring everyone up to speed and you will learn the key themes that underpin each discipline. In computer science you will explore the fundamentals of programming, computing and gain the professional skills required for effective academic study. In physics you will explore familiar topics such as mechanics, gravity, electricity, magnetism, oscillations and waves through to more modern areas like special relativity and introductory quantum physics. Building on the knowledge you have learnt in both subjects, in years two and three you will explore advanced core modules such as software engineering, quantum mechanics, nuclear and particle physics, solid state physics and electromagnetism. To add breadth to your learning, you can also choose modules that align with your career aspirations or interests. In your final year you will have the opportunity to work on final year projects that may be experimental, computational or theoretical. About Keele Keele University was established in 1949 by the former Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University.
