Computing Science with a Year in Industry

This course will prepare you to work in the rapidly changing field of computing – through both your studies at UEA and your year in the workplace. Over the four-year course 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. You will put yourself one step ahead of fellow graduates by spending your third year in industry. You will gain valuable work experience and have the chance to build your professional skills and confidence. In today’s competitive job market relevant work experience is a great advantage. A year in industry will not only give you first-hand knowledge of the way in which your chosen field operates, it will also greatly improve your chances of progressing within that sector as you gain valuable contacts and insight. The nature of the subject means students have a wide range of backgrounds in programming, 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. In core modules you will cultivate the essential skills of a computing professional, while in optional modules you’ll be able to sample some of the wide range of problems that arise in both research and industry. You will also gain transferable skills that will help your long-term development, such as working in teams, project management and presenting ideas. This degree has been accredited by the British Computer Society. **Course Structure** In this four-year degree programme you’ll start by mastering the core material underpinning computer science. You’ll also explore the areas of computing science that most spark your interest by choosing from a range of fascinating 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’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** Subject to successfully passing your company of choice’s selection procedure, you will spend 9-12 months working in industry to gain real life experience of working within the field of computing science and IT. Our well-established commercial connections throughout the UK and beyond will help you secure the best possible placement for you. Positions are usually paid, but the amounts may vary. **Year 4** You’ll undertake an independent research project investigating a specialist area in more depth with one-to-one support from your academic supervisor. You will also select several optional modules from a range that reflect the School’s research interests and strengths. All of our computer science courses follow an identical structure in the first two years. This means that you can easily transfer between them if you decide you want to incorporate a year abroad, a year in industry or continue on to Master’s level learning. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
