Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

How do everyday items like cars, mobile phones, games consoles and washing machines work? How can we use computer science to control equipment and machinery in the food and oil industries? On this course you’ll master computer science and discover how to apply it to hardware including embedded devices, networks and electronics. You’ll spend your third year in the workplace, putting your skills into practice and gaining vital experience, contacts and industry knowledge. If you’re a digital native who already lives and breathes computing, whether it’s through building your own hardware or coding your own apps, this course is for you. You’ll also be passionate about the contribution computing makes to humanity, from arts and entertainment, to business, health, communications, and society as a whole. You should already follow the exciting developments of the field in the press and on blogs, and be excited about contributing your own ideas and creativity to this always-evolving sector.
