Our Computer Science with Intelligent Systems BSc course is designed to cover everything that is indispensable for a first degree in computer science. In addition, it will introduce you to fundamental issues in intelligent systems, such as software agents, neural networks, pattern recognition, computer vision, artificial intelligence and computational intelligence. It is aimed at students who see themselves working in AI, automation, intelligent control or in the more general field of computer science. Computer Science with Intelligent Systems BSc at King’s gives you access not only to academics who are renowned in their field but current students who are researching and developing cutting-edge technology to advance the industry. In the first two years, you will study areas such as programming, computer systems, databases, artificial intelligence, software engineering and logic. In the third year, you will undertake a project, which involves implementing a sophisticated piece of software based on your particular interests.
Outside of teaching, our student societies organise social and other activities such as hackathons and river cruises so there is lots to get involved with. The Careers Service and the Department of Informatics run a careers programme for Informatics students, which includes skills sessions and visits from top employers.
Teaching is led by the Department of Informatics. You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15-credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module: lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions, independent study, coursework and preparation for examinations.
You are assessed through a combination of written examination, essays, practical examination, oral presentations, reports, class tests and projects. The nature of assessment varies by module.
