Course description

This course will allow you to gain fundamental skills such as programming, mathematics, network architectures and project management, while studying specialist artificial intelligence topics such as machine learning, image analysis, text analytics and their applications in areas from vision to automated reasoning. Drawing on our internationally leading research and development in the School of Computing and the University’s £4.3m National Facility for Innovative Robotics Systems, you’ll also explore how artificial intelligence is being applied to important economic and societal issues in fields such as medicine, health, transport and smarter cities through case studies from ongoing research projects.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
There are a lot of computing courses out there, and they vary a lot in content, modules and the way they work with employers, so individual courses can have very different outcomes. This is a course where you really need to get a good grade — employers really pay attention to the class of your degree and a low grade will serious hit your prospects. But you can get a job on pretty much any industry in the country with a computing degree - and organisation with an IT system and a web site needs graduates in this discipline - and many employers report difficulty in finding graduates. So most students do get jobs, and starting salaries are good, particularly in London. If you want to find out more about the prospects for a computer science course at a particular institution, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do.
