This course provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of computer science. There are extensive opportunities to specialise in a range of advanced areas while gaining skills in system development and enterprise. We review our curriculum constantly to ensure it remains at the leading edge.
Core ideas are introduced in years one and two. You will learn the principles of algorithms and programming, covering three key paradigms: imperative, functional and object-oriented.
You will study mathematics and statistics underpinning modern computer science; how a modern computer architecture is organised; concurrent and networked computing; and the foundations of human-computer interaction, cybersecurity, and theoretical and data-driven computer science.
During your year abroad you will study computer science topics that parallel, as far as possible, our curriculum at Bristol. The University has links with universities in countries such as the US, Hong Kong and Australia. Destinations are subject to change year-on-year. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
You will return to the University for your fourth year, where you will specialise in further advanced areas of computer science. You will also undertake an individual project, co-created with a supervising member of staff, with opportunities to work with industrial or research partners.
