Computer Science

Immerse yourself in Computer Science for four years and give yourself a UK masters level qualification. From the foundations of computer science and database development to artificial intelligence and games development, you’ll develop a wide variety of skills. Alongside this, you’ll also have the chance to undertake an optional industry placement year and a substantial research project. * Access a course that is likely to be of interest to those who want to pursue a career in research. This may not necessarily be academic research, it could also be corporate research and development. * Choose a four-year immersion course that gives you a UK M-level qualification, and which is also roughly equivalent to the four-year European degrees which follow the Bologna model. * Seize the opportunity to undertake a substantial project in conjunction with a research active member of staff, and with the intention of producing at least one academic publication. * Benefit from the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics’ strong links with industry. We have links with Apple, Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco, Intel, Nvidia and many more. We are a member of Microsoft DreamSpark and the Oracle Academy, both of which enable our students to acquire free software to support their studies (for example Microsoft Visual Studio, Server Operating Systems, SQL Server). * The results of the REF2014 (research assessment framework) rates 75 per cent of our outputs in the categories ‘Computer Science and Informatics’ as internationally recognised and world leading. All the key researchers also teach; you are likely to actually meet these people. * Deepen your knowledge with content that is constantly revised in conjunction with input from local and national organisations, as well as with active researchers.
