Course programme

This four year degree programme follows a similar structure to the BSc Computing Science course for the first two years, studying core material underpinning computer science. The third year of study will take place abroad with one of our university exchange partners in either North America or Australasia. In the fourth year of the course you will be able to structure your degree from a wide range of computing science modules, as well undertaking a major independent project in the final year of study.

Year 1

During your first year you will undertake compulsory modules which introduce you to the fundamentals of computing science. You will also undertake relevant mathematical modules.

Year 2

In the second year you will encounter state-of-the-art computing subjects, including software engineering, data structures and algorithms and theoretical computing. You will also be able to study modules taken from a list of optional subjects so you can begin shaping your own curriculum.

Year 3 (Year Abroad)

Your third year will be spent studying and living abroad with one of our university exchange partners. You will take a range of modules comparable to those taken by third year Computing Science students at the UEA; however you will also be able to take a number of modules that reflect the particular interests of the institution that you are visiting.

Year 4

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.
