Programme Aims & Outcomes

Each single honours and taught postgraduate degree programme has its own 'programme specification', which include its overall aims and outcomes. Joint honours degree programmes have a programme specification for the part of the programme taught by Computer Science; there is also an overall programme specification.

The Computer Science programme specifications are linked to the name of the programme in the tables below.

The School also has general aims and learning outcomes.

Postgraduate Taught Programmes

Important note: there have been major changes in the general University regulations for taught postgraduate degrees (MSc, PGDip, PGCert) over recent academic years. Students need to check carefully which regulations apply to them.

Some Masters programmes that are run by other Schools in the University use modules in the School of Computer Science: overview.

For postgraduate research programmes, see the Research Students web page.

Professional Accreditation

The School's undergraduate degree programmes, where appropriate, have been designed to be compatible with the requirements of the British Computer Society (BCS) and The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET; formerly the Institution of Electrical Engineering, IEE), both members of the Engineering Council.

It is never possible to guarantee in advance that a degree programme will be accredited since this is determined by the professional society, not the School.

For further details, see Accreditation of Degrees in the School of Computer Science 2003-2012 [PDF].
