Computing Science (with Education)

Study computing science whilst preparing for a rewarding career in education. You will acquire a strong grounding in the theory of computing science, as well as gaining experience and skills in software engineering and problem solving. You will become a competent programmer in a range of modern general purpose languages such as Java, Python, C and C++. You’ll explore the underlying principles of the subject and learn to adopt a logical, systematic approach to developing solutions to real-world problems. You’ll also benefit from our particular expertise in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, computer vision, graphics, computational biology, data science and speech processing, as well as software engineering and systems engineering. The nature of the subject means students have a wide range of backgrounds in programming, education and mathematics. Whatever your experience, the course is flexible enough to ensure you’ll achieve the level of understanding at the end of year 1 that you need to master the material on the rest of the course. You’ll tailor your computing modules to suit your strengths and interests, and complete an independent research project in both education and computing. You will also gain transferable skills that will help your long-term development, such as working in teams, project management and presenting ideas. You’ll gain hands-on teaching experience with a guaranteed secondary school placement, and you’ll be able to select from a number of modules from UEA’s School of Education and Lifelong Learning to further develop your understanding of teaching. This degree will prepare you for further study at Master’s level, a PGCE qualification, or teacher training through routes such as School-centred initial teacher training (SCITT). However you could also move into computing communication. **Course Structure** In this three-year degree programme you’ll start by mastering the core material underpinning computer science and education. Next, you’ll start to shape your degree by choosing optional modules. **Year 1** You’ll get to grip with the fundamentals of computing science with an emphasis on programming. And you’ll study mathematical modules and learn how they’re relevant. You’ll also be able to get involved in extracurricular education and science communication activity. **Year 2** In your second year you’ll learn how computers and operating systems work, how to model and manipulate data and how to use advanced programming concepts. You’ll also work in a team to engineer large-scale solutions to problems. Alongside this, you’ll do your work placement in a secondary school for the Education in Action module. You will also be able to choose from a range of optional modules as you begin shaping your own curriculum. **Year 3** You’ll undertake two independent research projects – one in computer science and one in education. You will investigate your specialist areas in professional depth with one-to-one support from your academic supervisor. You will also select several optional modules that reflect UEA’s research interests and strengths. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
