Computer Science with a Year Abroad

Computer Science plays a key role in virtually every aspect of modern life, and this integrated Masters level degree is ideal for those wanting to pursue a career where problem solving is based on rigorous scientific principles. We have great career prospects in Computer Science, with 91.9% of our graduates in graduate employment or further study six months after leaving University (DHLE Survey 2016), in rewarding careers such as software engineering, big data and data science, security analysis, mobile and emerging technologies. You will be taught in our new £31m Computational Foundry, a world class centre with state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research, as well as networking and meeting spaces, which bring students, academics and industry together. The Foundry provides a regional hub to further build our already excellent relationships with global tech companies and local industry, and you will be able to present your work to employers at our Project Fair. On this five-year degree you will have the opportunity to learn about computer graphics, modelling computer systems, software engineering, writing mobile apps, data visualisation and some of the more advanced theoretical aspects of Computer Science. You will spend the fourth year at one of our partner institutions abroad. This is a marvellous opportunity to experience a different culture and, depending on the destination, to develop valuable language skills. Then, in your final year, you will undertake a large scientific project using problem-solving principles, drawing on the research strengths of the department in the areas of human-computer interaction, theoretical computer science and visual computing. Computer Science at Swansea ranks in the top five for student satisfaction with a score of 94% (National Student Survey 2017). Teaching is informed by our world class research, and our team of leading academics includes Professor Matt Jones, Wolfson Research Merit fellow, whose passion is empowering rural digital communities in the developing world and in the UK; and Professor Harold Thimbleby, who designs dependable systems to accommodate human error, especially in healthcare. “My studies at Swansea have made me well-prepared for my job at 4C Consulting London which is a leading Platinum Sales Force Partner that specialises in building cloud applications. I believe that I would not have landed this job if not for the experience I have gained from my time in Swansea. More specifically, the degree content related fairly closely with the concepts that I practise now.” - Genalyn Estrada, Developer, 4C Consulting, London
