2 Course Content Description Year 1 All students undertake five computer science modules, which cover programming, the characteristics of computers and computing systems, and the mathematical foundations of the subject. You are also introduced to the concept and philosophy of computer science and see how this applies in real-world computational development. All students undertake an elective module, which may be from elsewhere within the School, Faculty or University. Students completing the first year will have had a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of computer science and to the principles, practices and methodologies that make computer science unique as a scientific subject. You will also have had a glimpse of the challenges of developing modern computational systems and how these systems affect the world around us. Compulsory modules are: Year 2 Introduction to Programming Computational Development Algorithms and Data Structures Computer Systems Mathematics for Computer Science. Students study six modules covering a core set of topics. One module involves a team software development project and enables you to work with external not-for-profit or voluntary organisations within the region and gain practical software development experience. Other compulsory topics include, for example, computer networks, parallel and distributed computing, concurrency, data structures, algorithms, theory of computation, data compression, different programming paradigms, databases, systems programming, software engineering, human computer interaction, aspects of artificial intelligence, and computer graphics. The topics undertaken in the second year prepare students with an excellent grounding in a wide range of fundamental subjects within computer science, plus and understanding of how these ideas might be applied during their third year industrial placement. By the end of the second year all students are in a position to make informed judgements as to which areas of industry and business they might wish to focus on. Compulsory modules are: Networks and Systems Programming Paradigms Software Engineering Group Project Software Methodologies Theory and Practice of Software Development. Page 2

3 Year 3 Students undertake a forty week placement in a software development setting, usually within the UK. Both the University and Tech Partnership will support you in finding and successfully completing your placement, which will involve you working alongside other professionals, honing your technical skills and further developing your project skills. During this year you will also undertake PRINCE2 Foundation project management training. There is a reduced fee during the placement year, and most placements students are paid by their employer. Year 4 A key element of the final year is the individual project (which is a double module). This is undertaken under the direct supervision of a member of staff and gives you the opportunity to tackle a specific computing task in much greater depth than is possible for other modules. At the end of the project, you will write a technical paper describing your findings. Students are given a considerable amount of choice as to the subject of their projects; indeed, students can suggest specific projects themselves, which may be in the area that they worked in during placement. In another module students are encouraged to reflect on their placement activity and to plan how to introduce a new technology or working practice that they have learned about, combining legacy systems thinking, technology adoption and project planning. In addition, all students study embedded systems development and computer security. Students have a free elective choice for their final module, which can be from modules withing the school covering a variety of aspects of, for example, software and software systems, computing methodologies, applications and contemporary computer science (with the latter topic engaging with modern research within computer science that is highly relevant to current technological advances and applications). There is also the opportunity to follow specific modules offered elsewhere in the School and a module involving the teaching of computer science in schools, giving an early taste of teaching computer science to those interested in pursuing it as a career or on other career pathways where a public understanding of science is required. Alternatively you may choose an appropriate module from elsewhere in the university, e.g. to take up or extend a modern language or to look at entrepreneurship or globalization issues. Page 3
