This four-year programme allows you to gain a greater depth of knowledge of computing science. You will follow the BSc programme structure for the first three years gaining a solid foundation in programming, problem-solving, and relevant mathematics and computing theory. You will then develop these themes further through core study in programming, software engineering, data structures and algorithms and operating systems and architectures. In your final year you will undertake a major research or software development project, where you will work as part of a team. This will normally be in collaboration with research project partners or industry.
In Year 1 you will study a range of compulsory topics which will provide you with a strong foundation in computing, such as Java programming, Databases and Computing Principles. In Years 2 and 3, you will study a combination of compulsory and optional modules. Compulsory modules include Programming, Software Engineering and Operating Systems and Architectures. Optional modules include Computer Graphics, Computer Vision and Sound and Image Processing. Your final year of study is distinctive (as part of a four year course programme) because you will have the opportunity to apply all the research techniques you will have gained over the last three years in order to complete a significant independent research project. You will also have the opportunity to select advanced modules that complement your area of research.
