This Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool combines the core elements of Electronic Engineering with those of Computer Science, the intellectual discipline underlying all aspects of software development.

Visit the official programme website for more information


Teaching is divided between the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics and the Department of Computer Science. Combining elements from these two disciplines will equip you with both an added breadth of knowledge, and greater specialisation. Graduates of the Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool are in demand because of their fluency both in the language of electronic engineers as well as that of computer scientists, enabling you to bridge the gap between software systems and the real world.

During Year One you will be introduced to the fundamentals of electronics as well as the underlying principles and theory of computing. Your lecture modules will cover the core subjects of electronic circuits, digital electronics, Java programming and data structures.

In addition you will take modules such as mathematics and spend one day a week doing practical work in both the computer and electronics laboratories. This will give you excellent practical and transferable skills vital for subsequent years of the programme and invaluable in your future career.

The second year builds on the first with core modules in Software engineering, Database development, Digital electronics and Signals and communication systems. More time is spent in the electronics laboratory doing practical work to consolidate the knowledge learnt in lectures and partaking in an extended team project.
