Computing Science with a Year Abroad

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, and 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. 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. 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. Choose from universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia or Australia, each with their 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. **Course Structure** You will follow the BSc programme structure for the first three years, gaining a solid foundation in programming, problem solving, and relevant mathematics and computing theory. You will then develop these themes further through core study in advanced programming, software engineering, data structures, algorithms, and operating systems and architectures. **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’ll be relevant to your future career. **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 start to shape your own curriculum with a choice of optional modules. **Year 3** In your third year you’ll spend time abroad, either for a single semester or the whole year. While you’re at your chosen university you’ll continue studying similar subjects to those at UEA. Or you can choose to focus on selected topics in greater depth – reflecting the strengths and research specialisms of the partner institution. **Year 4** In your final year, you’ll undertake a large project, supervised by a member of the faculty, and study your choice of a selection of optional modules at Master’s level. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change. You should always confirm the details on the provider's website: **www.uea.ac.uk**
