If you study Computer Science at Coventry you will experience a
degree course that goes well beyond studying theory and passing
examinations. In the IT industry you will have to find real solutions
to real problems, and our course is designed to teach you the
practical skills required to be able to do this later in your
professional life.

A broad range of study subjects will help you to understand
essentials of computer science and its key applications, and our
committed team of experienced teaching staff pride themselves on their
friendliness, approachability and academic excellence.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • Accreditation from the British Computer Society (BCS)
  • Course content that is updated regularly and informed by strong
    industry links and research work
  • Experienced teaching staff who bring professional or research
    expertise into their teaching
  • An annual programme of extracurricular lectures on engineering and
    computing topics presented by the Institution of Engineering and
    Technology (IET) and the British Computer Society (BCS)
  • Extensive computing resources in our computing laboratories, with
    the latest industry-standard software and hardware
  • The opportunity to take part in our IT mentoring scheme run in
    conjunction with IBM
  • Collaborative links with universities in 20 countries around the
    world, affording the chance for you to spend part of your studies
  • State-of-the-art facilities in the Faculty’s new Engineering and
    Computing building

In your first year you will study the fundamentals of computer
science, periodically working on intensive sets of exercises and
activities that will help you to understand and develop computer
software and hardware.

Throughout the first two years of study you will learn to write and
test computer programs to meet the needs of real customers in their
businesses and organisations – including making the software easy to
use and proving it works correctly.

In the final year your own personal honours project will be the focus
of your attention, but you will also study advanced topics such as
artificial intelligence and how to manage the development of a large
software system so that it is on time and of high quality.
