You will gain a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of computer science combined with opportunities to specialise in application areas while gaining skills in system development and enterprise.

Core ideas are introduced in years one and two. You will cover the principles of programming and algorithms, including:

  • how a modern computer works;
  • computational theory and how to design programming languages;
  • concurrent systems and networks;
  • machine learning and pattern recognition.

A key component of year two is the software group project in which you work in a team to deliver an application to a client with help from an industrial mentor. You can take options in human-computer interaction and complexity theory. You will also take language units to prepare you for studying abroad in a foreign language.

Key facts:

During your third year in Europe you will study computer science topics that parallel, as far as possible, our course at Bristol. We currently have links with universities in Austria, Spain, Denmark and other countries. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

You will return to the University for your fourth year, when you will specialise in application areas and undertake an individual project, with opportunities to work with industrial and research partners.

The Computer Science with Study in Continental Europe is offered at the University of Bristol.
