Overview

At the University of Birmingham we recognise that today’s computer scientists are in high demand and have a range of expertise. We also know that at this point in time it is essential that the course you choose meets your future career aspirations, that’s why our BSc Computer Science degree offers a balance of general computer science with practical software engineering and the opportunity to tailor your degree to suit your interests and career goals so that you leave us prepared for a career in industry or research.

Our flexible three-year BSc Computer Science degree is structured to provide you with a thorough understanding of a wide range of computational systems to ensure you are equipped to meet the challenges of your individual and group projects – as well as a life and career beyond university.

The transition to University level learning can be difficult and that is why in your first year we ensure you study the key components of computer science to ensure you have a firm foundation in the principles of algorithms, AI, software engineering and relevant maths. We understand that not everyone who wants to study computer science will have exactly the same interests, that’s why from as early as your first year you will be given the chance to pursue your own interests and most importantly shape your degree to suit your future career aspirations.

We are committed to ensuring you develop key skills needed to boost your future prospects. That’s why in your second year you will work in a team to produce software and also learn new styles of programming in Java, a language widely used in business and industry, and a second language. Your third year enables you to tailor your degree to suit your interests and strengths with a wide range of modules to choose from and an individual project, either developed from your own idea or from a wide selection offered by staff members.
