Our Computer Science with Robotics BSc course covers everything that is essential for a first degree in computer science. In addition, it will introduce you to fundamental aspects of robotics, including sensors, actuators, control and embedded systems. It is aimed at students who see themselves working in robotics, automation, mechatronics, intelligent control or in the more general field of computer science.
You will have access to over 250 fast PCs running Windows and Linux. These are spread over several state of the art laboratories for the exclusive use of the Department.
Our student societies organise social and other activities.
Teaching is led by the Informatics Department. 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.
The Department of Informatics consists of expertise in four computer science groups (Agents & Intelligent Systems, Planning, Algorithm & Bioinformatics, and Software Modelling & Applied Logic), and groups in Robotics and Telecommunications. The selection of available optional taught course modules reflects the range of research interests in the department. All years of our programmes are kept under constant review and we reserve the right to change and improve them at any time.
