Computer Science at Birmingham

We offer a variety of undergraduate degree programmes in disciplines allied to computer science, software engineering, and artificial intelligence:

Degrees in Computing and another subject

BSc/MSci Mathematics and Computer Science

Useful information

  • The BSc degrees are three year programmes
  • The MEng/MSci degrees are four year programmes. An MEng/MSci is a Masters level qualification that provides alternative to the traditional BSc + MSc route. The MEng/MSci qualifies you for LEA funding in the fourth year, which means that you can gain a Masters level qualification at potentially a lower cost to you
  • The BSc and MSci degrees in Computer Science are both available as a four year programme with a Year of Study Abroad
  • All of our undergraduate degrees are available with a Year in Industry
  • The school also offers an Year in Computer Science, which offers students the opportunity to take a one year break from their main degree programme to study a year in our School
