World-Class TeachingComputer Science degrees at Warwick are internationally renowned for their blend of foundational rigour and research-led teaching in cutting edge domains. Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are continuously updated to satisfy the current and future needs in all walks of life, and to reflect the rapidly evolving and challenging nature of the discipline.
We are noted for our friendly academic community and excellent student support. Maintaining a low student-staff ratio allows us to ensure that every student receives excellent tuition and the opportunity to develop according to their interests. Coupled with our first-class facilities and emphasis on technical merit, this means that our students graduate with the confidence and skills to lead in science and industry.
First-Class FacilitiesAll of our students have 24-hour access to dedicated computing laboratories, each of which is equipped with high specification workstations and comfortable spaces for group work and collaboration. This is in addition to specialised hardware and software for student projects. We have specialist state-of-the-art equipment to support teaching in areas including computer graphics and high performance computing. Our student-led iLab provides opportunities for students to explore and experiment with the latest mobile, pervasive and immersive technologies.
We play a leading role in five interdisciplinary research centres and are one of the founding partners of the prestigious Alan Turing Institute for Data Science. This institute – a £42 million collaboration between UK leaders in Computer Science and Mathematics – will shape policy in the UK and stimulate research activity in data science for decades to come, creating unique opportunities for all of our students.
Unique OpportunitiesEach of our single honours courses is accredited by the British Computer Society, fully meeting the educational requirement for CITP registration and, in the case of the MEng degree, for CEng registration. Our courses have also been awarded European Quality Labels by EQANIE.
We have excellent relationships with leading international organisations in industry and academia. In addition to sustaining excellent student employability, we regularly utilise these relationships in our taught degrees, providing students with experience of real-world problems and exposure to leading professionals in science, technology, engineering, finance and government.
The strength of our relationships with industrial and academic organisations allow any of our undergraduate students to spend a year in industry, undertake summer internships and study abroad, whilst our postgraduate students regularly benefit from industrial and academic collaboration throughout their degree. Please note that spending a year studying abroad or working overseas is subject to relevant visa regulations.
