Our comprehensive Computer Science MSci degree programme enables you to gain a systematic grounding in the theoretical underpinning of the discipline whilst also allowing you to delve into specialist areas of your interest. At the University of Birmingham we recognise that today’s computer scientists are in high demand and have a range of expertise. We also know that at this point in time it is essential that the course you choose meets your future career aspirations. That’s why our MSci Computer Science degree offers a balance of general computer science with practical software engineering and the opportunity to tailor your degree to suit your interests so that you leave us prepared for a career in industry or research. The transition to University level learning can be difficult and that is why in your first year we ensure you study the key components of computer science to ensure you have a solid understanding of the subject. We are committed to ensuring you develop key skills needed to boost your future prospects. That’s why in your second year you will be taught professional software engineering techniques and work in a team on a large project to produce software. You will also learn new styles of programming in Java, a language widely used in business and industry, and the C programming language.
