The Computer Science and Technology programme from Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University combines the core elements of electrical and electronic engineering with those of computer science to equip graduates with detailed knowledge of the design and development of both hardware and software.


The programme combines the core elements of electrical and electronic engineering with those of computer science. Teaching is divided equally between the Departments of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Computer Science at XJTLU. Academic staff teaching on the programme have actively collaborated with leading international partners such as Texas Instruments (USA), Synopsys (Ireland/USA), LG (Korea), and IBM (China).

Many graduates pursue postgraduate studies at world-renowned universities or start their career with prestigious employers because of these experiences. You will engage in research and industry-related work and, under the supervision of staff, you will have opportunities to present your research results at international conferences and to publish in leading journals.


Typically, BEng Computer Science and Technology graduates are employed in the semiconductor industries, electronic design and automation enterprises, electronic and computer equipment manufacturers, project consultancies, universities and research institutions.

The quantitative and other transferable skills you will acquire during your studies mean that you could also pursue a career in a non-technical profession such as banking, accountancy, management or law. The programme also provides a foundation for further postgraduate study in electrical and electronic engineering and computer science.
