About BEng Computer Science and Electronics

This programme combines the core elements of Electronic Engineering with those of Computer Science. It 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.

Teaching is divided between the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics and the Department of Computer Science.  The first two years cover the foundations of computing and electronics, equipping you to work confidently in both software and hardware. The first two years are common with the MEng in Computer Science and Electronics, and transfer on to the MEng is possible up to the end of the second year, subject to satisfactory end of year performance.

During the third year, you will also undertake a 22-week individual project.

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.
