About this program

Computer Science

Computer Science is all about new ideas, new opportunities and fresh thinking. There is no other discipline that can be applied to so many different areas and have such a profound impact on all aspects of society. The dynamism of this exciting subject is reflected in this degree through the study of a range of topics including networks, robotics, the Internet, and mobile and embedded computing and cutting-edge technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.

Study this degree with us and you will acquire practical skills that are highly sought after by industry, such as programing in C, C++, Java, Lua, Python, JavaScript and C#. Computer science-related jobs are not only appealing in their versatility, earning potential and demand, computer science has a wide-reaching social impact, posing many ethical questions, and these issues are examined at various points during the three years of study.

Computer Science is not only intellectually challenging, it is also THE most creative of subjects. As such the staff in the department will provide you with close academic and practical support. All staff in the Department are research active and have a varied background in a diverse range of interests, and this enhances your experience by providing a rich curriculum with exposure to multiple approaches and areas of research. If you are enthusiastic, inventive and looking to shape the future, or if you’re looking to leverage your love of technology to make a difference this degree is for you. Rest assured. Computer Science is an incredible career choice for someone who wants to change the world.

The course is ranked 3rd in the UK for course satisfaction, value added (Guardian University Guide 2022) and for teaching quality (Times Good University Guide 2021).

Program content

Year One

Your first year of study will be a broad introduction to Computer Science with a focus on developing the theoretical knowledge, problem solving and practical skills that underpin Computer Science. In addition, the following fundamental computer science topics will be covered:

  • Computer Systems
  • Algorithm Design
  • programing
  • Computational methods

You will use various programing environments to create programs, applications and also controlled electronic devices to develop the principles of computational thinking along with the study of computer systems, from digital logic and electronics through Java and C programing, up to using a physics engine to create a computer game.

Year Two

In your second year, you will develop a broader understanding and knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of Computer Science, reflecting on more specialist areas within the discipline. Specific topics will be covered in greater depth with an emphasis on programing and applications development, and database technology. Other topics studied include:

  • Computer Networks
  • Operating systems
  • Website Development

Year Three

Your final year will focus on your dissertation in an area of your choice, but you will also study topics such as software engineering, innovations in Computer Science, and computer security and communications. Other topics studied include:

  • Immersive technologies (VR/AR and MR)
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Advanced Web Technologies
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
