University of Surrey:
University of Surrey is located in Guilford, Surrey (40 minutes from London by train) in the south-east of England, and provides BSc degree programmes in computer science, and computing & information technology. All of our programmes are available as 4-year BSc degrees including a professional training year, or as 3-year BSc degrees without a professional placement. Our graduates, with their unique combination of computing, business and technical knowledge, are equipped to enjoy significant rewards in the world’s most exciting industry.
Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree Computing Programmes:
Our degree programmes are developed in close consultation with an Industrial Advisory Board that comprises representatives of major IT organisations in the UK. These representatives also contribute directly with teaching to provide you with up-to-date and relevant experiences of IT. This is further supported by the inclusion of an industrial placement year. This ensures that our degrees reflect the contemporary concerns and requirements of modern business and industry.
Our programmes provide multidisciplinary content that allows you to cover both the core elements of computing and the fundamental themes appropriate to the individual programme pathways. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop a range of personal and professional skills that will provide you with an edge upon entering the job market.
* Typical Entry Requirements: A level grades AAB. If you are an international student and you don’t meet the entry requirements to this degree, we offer the International Foundation Year.
* Required Subjects: Computer Science: Mathematics, Computing or Physics required. Computing and Information Technology: Scientific or technical subject at A level preferred.
* English Language Requirements: An IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent for non-native-English-speaking applicants. If you are an international student and you don’t meet the entry requirements to this degree, we offer the International Foundation Year. Please note that the University of Surrey offers English language programmes and is also an IELTS Test Centre.
* Other Suitable Qualifications:
- BTEC National Diploma - DDD (in an appropriate science subject, with a distinction in a suitable mathematics module)
- International Baccalaureate - 35 points
- European Baccalaureate - 75%
A wide range of other qualifications will be considered on an individual basis.
* Selection Process: Offers are made in terms of grades. We do not include General Studies in our offers. We may invite candidates for interview. We invite suitable candidates to visit the University to find out more about the programme and meet staff and students.
* Professional Recognition: Our degrees are accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS). The BCS Professional Development Scheme is also an integral part of our professional training year. It counts towards the experience required for professional membership of the BCS.
- Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Computer Science (3 years) & Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Computer Science (4* years):
Computer Science aims to provide you with a balance of knowledge and skills to design and implement software and systems to a professional standard. It is designed to equip you for a career at the forefront of innovation in software technologies. The programme will provide you with a thorough understanding of the principles and concepts underpinning computing systems. This will both enable you to analyse and resolve issues with today’s software systems, and provide a foundation on which to design the next generation of computational systems.
You will study modules that cover a wide range of topics including object-oriented programming, artificial intelligence, digital logic and computational mathematics. You will be introduced to techniques for developing complex software systems and computer networks, and gain the necessary mathematical skills for analysing, validating and verifying these systems.
- Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Computing and Information Technology (3 years) & Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Computing and Information Technology (4* years):
Computing and Information Technology provides a strong technical basis together with a functional management focus. It will ensure that graduates from the programme have an excellent mixture of business awareness and technical skills. Topics covered include business finance and business strategy, together with a software engineering theme and new developments in computing, particularly the Internet.
This programme is designed to help you develop all of the skills you will require to contribute, as a professional, to the exploitation of computing systems within organisations. It is an integrated programme, which places equal emphasis on four fundamental themes of information technology: Internet computing, information systems, quantitative analysis and business methods.
To succeed as an information technologist, you will need to understand the driving forces of the world for which you are building a solution, as well as the intricacies of software systems. For the information technologist it is equally important to understand the vocabulary of organisations and be comfortable with the mathematical techniques that allow the essence of a problem to be represented. This will enable you to communicate effectively with both managers and software engineers, each on their own terms.
* Programme includes a professional training year
- Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours Degree in Computer Science and Engineering:
The Computer Science and Engineering programme offers core computer science modules covering chip design, networking and data communications combined with specialist engineering modules. You will be introduced to semiconductors and other devices, to digital logic, and to the complexities of computer architectures and operating systems. You will still explore mathematical techniques for studying digital devices, but will find that there is a greater emphasis on the engineering aspects compared to the Computer Science degree.
Computing systems are powered by ‘chips’, ‘processors’ and many other components. These components are made of exotic materials, some of which are still emerging from research labs. The components have to be organised and related in particular ways to realise their full potential. Thus, no matter whether the computing system sits on your palm or is used to power up an Intranet, the knowledge of the material and its deployment is crucial to the development and maintenance of computing systems.
