Computing Science with Study Abroad - University of East Anglia

**About This Course** Learn to program the future and prepare to excel in a range of computing fields, from the information systems of banks and businesses, to the creativity of gaming and web design, to artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, cloud computing, big data and lots more. In your third year you’ll get to take your learning on tour by spending the year studying overseas – expanding your academic horizons and experiencing a whole new culture. This course is ideal if you’re a digital native who already lives and breathes computing, whether it’s through coding your own apps and websites, designing your own games, or building your own hardware. You’re most likely passionate about the contribution computing can, and does, make to humanity, in everything from arts, culture and entertainment, to business, health, communications, and society as a whole. You avidly follow the exciting developments of the field in the press and on blogs, and you can’t wait to contribute your own ideas and creativity to this always-evolving sector. **Overview** This four-year degree with a year abroad will give you the chance to study your subject in depth, preparing you for an exciting career working with the rapidly changing technology of computing. Our students have a range of programming and mathematical backgrounds, so the course is structured to enable you to achieve the same level of understanding across the fundamental areas of the subject by the end of your first year. We emphasise the importance of practical skills. Our core modules will help you develop the skills essential to a career as a computing professional, while our optional modules will allow you to get to grips with the wide range of questions that arise in both research and industry. During your four years of study you will acquire a strong grounding in the theory of computing science, and will gain 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 for 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. In your third year, you’ll get the academic and personal experience of a lifetime when you live and study abroad at one of our partner universities, either for the whole year or for a single semester. Choose from universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia or Australia, each with its own strengths and research specialisms to expand your learning. This is also a chance to build contacts, learn about a different culture, and show future employers your resilience and adaptability. In your fourth year, you will study at Master’s level to deepen your knowledge and specialise in the areas that interest you most. You’ll explore more advanced computing subjects and strengthen your research and analysis skills. This degree is accredited by the British Computer Society. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**
