Course summary

Introducing BSc Computer Science and Physics

This joint programme draws on Edinburgh's joint strength in computational physics and informatics.

You will develop a strong interdisciplinary background, covering relevant topics in both computer science and physics. You will have the chance to study topics that cross both fields, such as computational simulation of physical systems.

Accreditation

This programme is recognised by the Institute of Physics (IOP) for the purpose of eligibility for Associate Membership.

How will I learn?

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials and practical classes.

In later years you will spend more time working on projects that involve building computer systems from scratch, developing systems.

You will also carry out experimental work, or work on more theoretical topics with guidance from your supervisor.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed by coursework assignments, larger projects, and exams. Some project work will be undertaken individually and some together with other students.

You will complete a large individual project in Year 4 (or Years 4 and 5 for MInf students).
