Bachelor of Science with Honours in Computer Science

Awarded by Coventry University

Course introduction


Computer science exposes the heart and soul of almost all the technology we rely on in the modern world. It introduces many of the most powerful problem-solving strategies known to mankind. You will gain a foundational knowledge in all areas of the subject, including programming, computer architecture, software system design and usability testing. You will also work on professional skills and relevant mathematics.

By the end of the second year, you should have learned to write and test programs, work in a development team on a real world project, understand and build computer and network systems and have a working knowledge of vital aspects of computer industry ethics and law.

In the final year, these skills are combined with an individual project. This normally involves building an original computer system, which will solve one of a range of challenging problems suggested by an expert in the relevant field. We introduce you to the study of the limits
of computation, techniques for analysing and solving more complex problems and large scale software systems development.

In addition, through non-trivial technical projects, open-ended tasks and high expectations, graduates are expected to be capable of the technical work expected of the industry.
