About

The Computer Science and Electronics programme at the University of Bristol will allow you to understand how to design and build both hardware and software for all types of computer systems, in order to implement applications ranging from medical equipment and autonomous vehicles to finance systems.

Your first two years cover the foundations of computing and electronics, equipping you to work confidently in both software and hardware. Year three includes a major project, either based in industry or industry-inspired, which is undertaken at the University. You can tailor your fourth year to suit your interests by choosing an individual project and optional units.

The MEng course provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer. The first two years are common with the BEng Computer Science and Electronics, and transfer between courses is possible until the end of year two, subject to satisfactory performance.

The Bristol area is home to a range of thriving and world-leading semiconductor design companies who contribute to our curriculum design as well as hosting industry-based projects.
