Course overview

This course will give you the skills and knowledge necessary to apply valid computer science methods to new and emerging computing problems. These abilities are highly valued by employers.



You’ll learn from active researchers with expertise in important areas of computer science, including artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, mathematical foundations and visual computing. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.

As a student here, you’ll also have lots of opportunities to get involved in societies and events such as hackathons, coding competitions and conferences.



You’ll have access to purpose-built teaching labs, including a dedicated prototyping lab, allowing you to create and experiment with software-driven systems and devices. Complex, data-intensive processes can be analysed over high-speed networks with our High-Performance Computing facility ‘Balena’. Our specialist labs can be accessed 24/7.



Recent graduates have gone on to a wide variety of careers including as Product Manager at Atos, Cyber Security Analyst at Selex ES, Software Tester at Fujitsu and Software Developer at Imagination Technologies. You’ll also be well suited to roles in business, education and administration. Many of our graduates also choose to go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.

Who is this course for

Your application, especially your personal statement, should demonstrate your enthusiasm for studying your chosen degree. This might include relevant reading, voluntary or work experience, hobbies or other relevant extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.


You will need a strong performance in Mathematics as part of your entry qualifications. We prefer applicants who can demonstrate evidence of logical and analytical thinking such as through the study of decision Mathematics, Computing or science subjects. We prefer applicants who have previously studied Computing, however, you do not need to have done so to be suitable for this course.


We are aware that the context in which you are studying can have an impact on your ability to perform your best in exams and coursework, or limit which subjects or qualifications you are able to study at your school or college. We take this into careful consideration through our contextual admissions process.

What Will I Learn

You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. In the first year, you’ll learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the second and final years. In the second year, you will complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application.


In the final year, you will choose optional units alongside an individual project that combines your interests in a specific area of computer science. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field.


Broaden your horizons with a year studying at a university abroad. You’ll experience another culture while studying a course that complements your studies at Bath.


We have links with universities in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe, currently including Binghamton University, University of Nebraska, University of Canterbury, TU Vienna and National University Singapore.


If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MComp Computer Science course.
