Course summary

Develop theoretical and practical abilities in software design, development and experimentation, to become an innovative computing professional. This course is for you if you’re interested in studying computer science but want to wait until later in your degree before deciding what area to specialise in. It's a broad-ranging course providing you with the knowledge to apply computer science methods to new and emerging computing problems, and learn skills highly valued by employers. You will gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course combines software systems design, software development, interaction design, artificial intelligence, computational mathematics, computer graphics, and vision. Tailor to your interests In the first year, you will 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. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field. Computer science master's The MComp provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to and integration with our research groups in the Department. In your final year, you will choose optional units alongside a research project, which will be aligned to one of the research groups in the Department and will be based on your interests.
