About Computer Science at Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Leeds

Computing underpins modern life, and the link between current research in computing and commercial product is critical to the continuing success of the IT industry. This course will equip you with the core technical and problem-solving skills to tackle current and emerging challenges in this crucial and fast-changing field.

You will start with the fundamentals of programming and the underlying mathematical principles of computer science, before developing skills in software engineering and algorithm design and exploring challenges in mobile computing, robotics, and graphics that will shape the future. You’ll learn to work with state-of-the-art technologies and select optional modules that suit your interests and career plans, from cloud computing to bio-computation and machine learning.

You’ll be taught by experts in world-class facilities and undertake project work in every year, to build the range of skills you’ll need throughout your professional career.

Course highlights

  • Our courses are shaped by our world-leading research in areas such as artificial intelligence, computational science and engineering, computational medicine and distributed systems.

  • We’re a partner of the Alan Turing Institute, the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

  • During your project work you will access specialist facilities and laboratories in the brand new Sir William Henry Bragg Building.

  • Small tutorial groups are used to support the teaching, so you get regular feedback from the academic staff helping you solve any problems that you might have with a particular topic.

Specialist facilities

You will have access to specialist facilities including well-equipped labs containing Linux and Microsoft platforms.

For final-year project work you’ll also be able to make the most of our research facilities, such as a 53-megapixel powerwall display and dedicated 3D virtual reality suite, a new testbed for cloud computing and dedicated labs with high-spec, dual-display Linux workstations, iPad, Mac and Android development areas.
