Subject

Computer science

Artificial intelligence is the fascinating practice of creating computers and machines that can simulate intelligence, such as decision-making, visual perception, and speech recognition. At Nottingham, you have the opportunity to integrate a paid year in industry into your studies, gaining practical experience in an industry which lies at the forefront of scientific endeavour. You will be studying at one of the few institutions that have designed the curriculum recommended by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE).

Modules

In your first year you will study: Programming and Algorithms; Computer Fundamentals; Systems and Architecture; Mathematics for Computer Scientists; Database and Interfaces; Software Engineering; Programming Paradigms; and Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence. In your second year you will study: Software Engineering Group Project; Algorithm Correctness and Efficiency; Topics in Computer Science; Operating Systems Distributed/Parallel; Languages and Representations; Human Computer Interaction; Software Quality; and Artificial Intelligence Methods. In your third year you will undertake a year in industry. In your fourth and final year you will write an individual dissertation and take modules in Professional Ethics; Computer Security; and Software Specification.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This is a newly-classified subject area for this kind of data, so we don’t currently have very much information to display or analyse yet. The subject is linked to important and growing computing industries, and over time we can expect more students to study them — there could be opportunities that open up for graduates in these subjects as the economy develops over the next few years.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
