You may be able to access our Student Support fund and other sources of financial support during your course. Games design and development is an increasingly important and sophisticated topic, that draws together many of the core aspects of and Software Engineering. This course introduces students to the fundamentals of game design, gives them pr…

I had also attended one of the applicant days held by the computer science department. The University is spread out across two campuses; the second campus is just a 15-minute walk away alternatively a free shuttle bus can take you there in five minutes. For example, on our de Havilland campus, there are opportunities to take part in leisurely activities for free. Students who have successfully completed a Polytechnic Diploma may be considered for entry to our undergraduate degree programmes .

Discover Uni relies on superficially similar courses being coded in the same way. For example, Music courses and Music Technology courses can have exactly the same code despite being very different programmes with quite distinct educational and career outcomes. All students also work on a substantial project demonstrating their computer science skills, writing a 10,000 word dissertation on it. Projects are often connected with current Cambridge research and many utilise cutting-edge technology.

Your Computer Science Experience

Our staff have written internationally acclaimed textbooks for learning programming, which have been translated into eight languages and are used worldwide. A member of staff has received the SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contribution to Computer Science Education. The award is made by ACM, the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. Teaching is based on lectures, with practical classes and seminars, but we are also introducing more innovative ways of teaching, such as virtual learning environments and work-based tuition. Work includes group projects, case studies and computer simulations, with a large-scale project of your own choice in the final year.

  • We’ll aim to process your application within two to six weeks, but this will depend on when it is submitted.
  • This accredited course meets the evolving needs of industry, and will give you a deep understanding of the principles of Computer Science.
  • We have a range of subject-specific awards and scholarships for academic, sporting and musical achievement.

Holders of the Indian Standard XII will be considered for entry to the first year of our undergraduate degree programmes. Holders of Higher Diplomas with a good performance (at least B+ or GPA 3.2 above) will be considered for entry to year 2 of relevant undergraduate degree programmes within Engineering and Computer Science. For study on our Foundation and Undergraduate programmes, English language at grade C or above in the WAEC SSCE is sufficient to meet the standard English language requirements.

Course Time

Computer science is a fast-moving field that brings together disciplines including mathematics, engineering, the natural sciences, psychology and linguistics. Our course provides you with skills highly prized in industry and for research. Creating a viable technology start-up requires insight into technical development and what it takes to deliver your product. Then, as a small production team, you will then select an idea to take forward to develop and present this a final product pitch. In this module you will explore advanced techniques in programming as well as building an understanding of how high level objected-oriented languages are executed on a modern CPU.

Recent placement students have worked at large organisations such as Apple, BT, IBM, Intel, GSK, Microsoft, and Xerox. Others have worked for smaller organisations, perhaps family-run or near home. This course offers you the opportunity to enhance your study and CV with a sandwich year abroad. The University has partnerships with over 150 universities around the world, including the USA, Canada, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America and closer to home in Europe. An opportunity for an amazing experience, which will help make you stand out from the crowd. With more and more companies working internationally, experience of living in another country can make a great impression on future employers.

College Of Medical And Dental Sciences

When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this. You will be introduced to Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining techniques for problem solving.
