New immersive realities, data-rich and informed interactions, automations, and ever-more connected clouds are shaping the way the world operates and people interact with each other. Underpinning these advances, and pivotal to the future economy, is computer science. Computer scientists explore the theory and methods of computation to engineer novel computer technologies, solve problems, and devise better ways of doing things.
Choose between a three-year degree or a four-year degree with a year of professional practice. While you must select one for your UCAS application, you’ll have the chance to change your decision up to the end of your second year.
