Course summary

This Computer Science degree includes a year of master's level study and a year studying abroad. This provides you with valuable international experience and the expertise to launch your professional or research career in this fast-paced sector.

Course overview

This accredited four-year degree provides training in key and emerging topics such as cyber security, data science and bioinformatics, and ensures you graduate prepared to meet the evolving needs of the industry.

You'll be based in the truly inspiring Urban Sciences Building, and study at a world-leading centre in computing innovation and industry collaboration.

By studying a broad curriculum in your first two years, you'll develop knowledge in different aspects of computing science, and gain highly desirable skills in problem solving, program design and implementation.

You'll spend your third year studying at one of our English-speaking partner universities abroad as part of an approved exchange programme.

In Stage 4 you can choose master's-level modules from the MSc in Advanced Computer Science. You'll receive comprehensive research training to help develop your skills in computer and information systems.

Professional accreditation

Following a curriculum review, we are seeking British Computer Society (BCS) accreditation for our degrees so you can be assured that you will graduate with a degree that meets the standard set by the IT industry.

BCS is the Chartered Institute for IT. Studying a BCS-accredited degree provides the foundation for a chartered IT professional, engineer or scientist.

Teaching methods

Teaching methods include:

  • lectures – including guest lectures by visiting IT professionals
  • tutorials – from our expert staff
  • supervised practical work – which accounts for a significant amount of your time
  • project work – to help you develop real-world business skills such as teamworking and project management

Project work includes a team project in Stage 2 to develop a substantial software product.

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.

You can choose to spend up to a year studying at a partner institution overseas.

If you choose to study abroad, it will extend your degree by a year.

Preparing you for career success

In the present job market, computing science graduates are better placed than many others to obtain employment in a challenging and fulfilling career, and the employability of Newcastle graduates is particularly high.

An increasing number of employers require digital skills, meaning our graduates are highly sought after. They move into bespoke software development roles in software houses and computer manufacturers and also into corporate organisations that use computers on a larger scale, such as banking, insurance and manufacturing companies and public sector institutions.
