Computer Science & AI with professional placement or study abroad

Course summary

Develop sound theoretical and practical skills in AI, software design, development and experimentation to become an innovative computing professional. This course is for you if you’re keen to learn about current Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies, specialising in this field from the start of your degree, whilst still gaining a broad grounding in computer science. AI is becoming an ever more important part of a wide range of sectors, from medicine to marketing, so this course will help prepare you for continued demand in the job market. You will gain a solid foundation in computer science and AI, including machine learning, with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course combines artificial intelligence with software systems design, software development, computational mathematics, and computer vision. Tailor to your interests In the first year, you will receive an introduction to AI and learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the following years. In the second year, you'll complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application. You can specialise in a particular field through optional units and an individual project, combining your interests in a specific area of computer science and AI. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field. You'll have the option to switch to our BSc/MComp Computer Science course after the first year if you develop interests in other areas of computer science. If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MComp Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence with professional placement or study abroad course.
