BSc Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science with a Year in Industry (GG74)
Our new curriculum has been designed to allow us to provide an in depth computer science education, but also give you the chance to really delve deeper into subjects of interest in your final year. Our first and second year 20 credit modules** are all compulsory to allow you to gain the necessary knowledge, whilst our final year 20 credit modules are optional (except the 40 credit Final Year Project).
** The exception to this is for students without Grade A in A Level Computing, who will be required to take a 40-credit Fundamentals of Programming in Java module in Year 1, in place of our 20-credit Programming in Java module and the 20 credits of Widening Horizons Modules available.
