This is a three-year programme designed to teach you a wide range of aspects of Computer Science. In year 1 you will learn how to program, study how computers work, be introduced to Software Engineering, and learn about the fundamental mathematics and theory of Computer Science. Year 1 is common for our BSc in Computer Science, BSc in Software Engineering and MEng in Computing. It is possible to switch between degrees.
In year 2 you will learn about operating systems and networking, computer graphics, databases, compilers, advanced and specialised programming programming, specification, and some of the more advanced theoretical aspects of Computer Science. You will develop your programming skills (in C and Java), and have the opportunity to attempt advanced tasks, both individually and in groups.
In year 3, you will undertake a large project, accounting for 25% of the credit for the year, and study a selection of our advanced option modules. These vary from year to year (see the current modules below).
