Course summary

Creativity and problem-solving are placed at the heart of the BSc (Hons) Computer Science course. On the course, you will be given the opportunity to examine key themes such as computer networks and security, data science, embedded systems, robotics, software engineering, and user interface design and development. The course has an elegant blend of theory and practice and offers a stimulating and challenging learning experience that allows you to develop an informed and practical understanding of the study of Computer Science. **Why Study Computer Science?*** This course enables students to develop competence in Computer Science alongside wisdom in its application sufficient for them to progress to postgraduate study or employability. * Through applied modules, students are provided with a rigorous, coherent and engaging curriculum that draws on the teaching strengths and research expertise in the subject area. * Relevant professional bodies (e.g. British Computing Society) inform the learning experiences provided to acquire and develop the practical skills essential within Computer Science.* Learning opportunities encourage and support the spirit of intellectual curiosity and enquiry, an ability to apply computational thinking to solve problems and the capacity for creative computing. * Students develop an appreciation of legal, professional, economic, environmental, moral and ethical issues involved with Computer Science and their impact upon society. **What does the course cover?**In your first year, you will study the basics of computer science. More specifically, you will use client-server architecture appropriately and study the security implications. You will analyse small-scale problems and design their solutions by applying algorithmic and mathematical techniques. The creation and manipulation of simple data collections, web development and programing would also feature in the foundation year.In your second year, you tailor your study to your strengths while developing a deeper understanding of user interface design, robotics and cybersecurity. More so, you will demonstrate professional responsibility in the development of medium-scale projects. You will have the opportunity to undertake a work placement, which will provide you with valuable and exciting experience within an area you may be considering for a career.As you progress into the third year, you will study some of the important and higher level Computer Science modules that include topics such as Internet of Things, Deep Learning, Web Application Development and Game Design and Development. Each of these modules develop your ability to think and analyse critically, and also to reflect and develop both personally and professionally with the aim of considering the role and career which you wish to undertake when you graduate. You will undertake a dissertation or final year project which will allow you to explore an aspect of Computer Science in greater detail.
