Computer Science at Brunel is one of the largest research groups of its kind in the UK. We have a vibrant and multinational community of students, academics and researchers. Computers are the key feature of contemporary life across the world and at the heart of just about everything we do. It’s difficult to think of a single thing you might do today that does not in some way incorporate computer technology. This is an innovative, fast'moving area of study, constantly breaking new ground. Consequently, there is strong demand for computing graduates in many commercial, industrial and public sector environments.
Our Computer Science courses will teach you everything you need for a successful career in IT – from programming and information systems to modules in mobile applications and artificial intelligence. During the first two years (Levels 1 and 2) you’ll study modules that are common to all our Computer Science degrees. In the third year, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a specialism that interests you. You can specialise in artificial intelligence, digital games and media, network computing or software engineering.
You’ll focus on how to build high quality systems which are easier to maintain and develop long term as system requirements change and available technologies evolve. The techniques involved include testing, service'oriented architectures and refactoring.
Our Computer Science graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects. You might start out as a general analyst or programmer, or join a consultancy firm. These are often the first steps towards setting up your own business. Recent graduates have gone on to work for household names including Microsoft and Toshiba.
All Department of Computer Science undergraduates take the same courses in Year 1. In Year 2, you choose between Computer Science and Business Computing. Typical modules in year 1 Group Project, Introductory Programming, Data and Information, Information Systems and Organisations, Logic and Computation. Typically in year 2 Group Project, Software Development and Management, Usability Engineering, Algorithms and their Applications, Networks and Operating Systems. Typically in year 3 Final Year Computer Science Project A substantial individual project you will research in'depth. If you’re taking a sandwich course it’s likely this project will be of interest to employers. Software Project Management, Advanced Topics in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence. Optional modules are Software Engineering, Network Computing, Digital Media and Games. Visit our website to find out full list of modules.
