We’ve structured the curriculum to accurately reflect the industry and its many areas of specialisation. You’ll study programming techniques, database development, how to capture requirements and what happens inside a computing operating system. A hands-on course from the outset, you’ll benefit from a number of practical workshops as well as preparing for your third year work placement. Building on these programming skills, you learn the principles and techniques that underpin the algorithms and systems shaping our world today. These include artificial intelligence, computer security, network technology, software engineering, and human-computer interaction.
If you don’t meet the English language requirements, you can achieve the level you need by successfully completing a pre-sessional English programme before you start your course. The content of this course acknowledges the borderless nature of computer science alongside the common practices and technologies used throughout the globe . Our course will offer you the opportunity2 to acquire relevant skills and experience with the use of emerging technologies and tools in a global context .
This Computer Science course is a three-year Bachelor of Science degree, we also offer a four-year Master of Science degree version too. Search for placements and find out more about work experience and internships. Our aim is to set you up with the skills and mindset to thrive in your career, even if your job doesn’t exist yet.
- The use of hardware peripherals, interrupts, multi-tasking and defensive programming will be explored and students will use programming strategies to optimize the execution time, energy consumption and memory size of their programs.
- Your computer science course may include a year in industry, which will give you the opportunity to develop commercial skills and build up a network of contacts.
- A range of passive and active offensive techniques will be taught, alongside an in-depth understanding of the legal and ethical issues surrounding such activity.
- Guided by an experienced tutor, the projects will help develop your research skills and experience the work of IT professionals.

Computer Science, Bsc Hons
The project integrates and expands upon software development stages covered on the course (project management, analysis, design, construction, communication, security and/or networking). This module provides students with an introduction to the principles of artificial intelligence and the methods used in that field. Topics covered include search and optimisation, knowledge representation and reasoning, and machine learning. Students will gain experience of modelling and simulation, and will apply analytical tools to evaluating results, and will consider the ethical implications of the introduction of AI. The UK government also provides living costs support to Home students from the UK and those with settled status who meet the residence requirements.
In your final year you’ve got a huge amount of choice so you really can tailor the degree to your ambitions and interests. You’ll spend one third of your time on a project, either developed from your own idea or from a wide selection offered by staff members. This usually involves writing a large piece of software and gives you the freedom to extend and demonstrate your skills in your own way.

Our Year in industry degrees incorporate an industrial placement during your third year of study. You will apply for your placement at a company of your choice, with support from our Employability team, who will be with you every step of the way. You will gain invaluable Industry experience while working with business professionals in the area of your choice. If you want a successful career in the IT sector then our Year in industry will help you gain experience on your route into your chosen profession.
Every undergraduate taught course has a detailed programme specification document describing the course aims, the course structure, the teaching and learning methods, the learning outcomes and the rules of assessment. The key objective of this module is to familiarise the students with the most important information technologies used in manipulating, storing and analysing big data. Students will work with semi-structured datasets and choose appropriate storage structures for them.
We hold an annual ‘Project Fair’ giving students the chance to display their third year projects to leading industry experts. Companies such as Google often visit our students to give lectures on ‘how to get a job with tech giants’. • You will have access to dedicated computer laboratories and specialised equipment for projects, including Arduinos, smart home technologies and virtual reality headsets.
