Course summary

TEF Gold

University of York has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This course gives you a good grounding in the study of both software (programs) and hardware (electronics) and how they integrate into the design of systems. The structure of the course means that you gain a thorough grounding in the discipline in the first two years. You can then sharpen your focus on those areas that interest you by choosing modules and your individual project on topics covered by our world-leading research and expertise and the latest developments in Computer Science. Choosing to study on a four-year Masters course gives you an extra year to study the topics that really interest you at a deeper level.
