Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Computing impacts almost every aspect of modern life. The digital revolution has had a profound influence across the world and continues to redefine how we live, learn and work.

A Computer degree from Swansea University can help you find your place in an ever-shifting technological landscape.

Aimed at the specific needs of advanced software development, this course is ideal if you are committed to a career in software development.

Over the course of the degree you will learn to identify the correct solutions to problems and measure their efficiency.

The MEng will distinguish you as a committed and knowledgeable computing expert.

COMPUTING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

We offer CV workshop and you will have access to our Employment Zone, which advertises work placements, part time vacancies and graduate jobs. We have dedicated staff who will always be on hand to provide employability support, throughout your studies.

We hold an annual ‘Project Fair’, giving students the chance to display their third year projects to leading Industry experts. Companies such as Google often visit our students to give lectures on ‘how to get a job with tech giants’.

We take Employability seriously and you will leave Swansea University with much more than a degree, gaining invaluable life skills and experiences on your journey.

Professional Body Accreditation

The MEng in Computing is accredited by the British Computer Society, and allows graduates to join immediately as professional members. In addition, the MEng in Computing is accredited for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status by the British Computer Society. This means after a few years of industrial experience, you can apply to become a Chartered Engineer. To do the same with a BSc degree you would need to study for the full-time equivalent of one year (typically actually undertaken part-time) after your degree.

Our career support services include:

  • Employability workshops, employers’ talks, bespoke events and careers fairs
  • Individual advice and guidance from professionally qualified Careers Advisers
  • Help with finding jobs, internships, work placements and volunteering opportunities
  • Access to information resources on a wide range of career management topics
  • Advice and guidance on postgraduate study and funding
  • Funding to support student internship opportunities and Student Society/Club events.

MEng Computing with a year abroad

As part of this degree scheme, you will be able to study at one of our huge range of partner universities in your third year. Studying abroad is a great opportunity to experience another culture, make friends from around the world and gain valuable experience to prepare you for the world of work after you complete your studies.

Places and availability change annually so specific destinations can’t be guaranteed, but previously Computer Science students have completed their year abroad in Australia, Canada, Singapore, Germany Spain and the USA.
