Coventry University

MSci/BSc (Hons) Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence

Computer science underpins almost all the science and technology that we rely on in the modern world. It is responsible for some of the most powerful problem-solving strategies known to mankind – the Internet, smart devices, artificial intelligence, robots and much, much more.

Take our virtual tour

We aim to explore practical applications in industry, commerce, research and everyday life, and a combination of theory and practice in traditional areas of computer science, including programming and algorithms, computer architecture, networking, system design and implementation.

You should also explore some of the new and exciting areas of development in this ever-changing field such as machine learning, data science techniques, mobile app development and cryptography in software security.

On top of these, the 3rd year (and 4th year for MSci) will have a specific focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI), enabling students to achieve the technical and transferable skills in this ever growing area.

Career Prospects

The practical nature of the course aims to place an emphasis on your future employability, with an aim to developing a wide range of technical, analytical, design and professional skills, many of which are may be gained from activity-led learning projects and placement experiences. The technical content is usually regularly reviewed and updated to reflect what is currently important and in demand in industry.

Your final year project will give you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with working professionally in industry in a chosen specialist field. This should allow you to build up a portfolio of evidence which, upon successful completion of this course, can be presented at future job interviews to help demonstrate the expected expertise.

Coventry University is committed to preparing you for your future career and giving you a competitive edge in the graduate job market. The university’s Talent team provide a wide range of support services to help you plan and prepare for your career.

Course Details

This Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence (AI) course builds on a common first two years with Computer Science and follows with a third, and optional fourth MSci year, dedicated to AI. Students can also opt for a placement year in industry or a year spent studying abroad*.

In all cases the course is designed to produce graduates with the technical and transferable skills needed in a wide range of careers and industries; whether these are established computer science domains such as software development and database maintenance, or emerging ones influenced by the growing use of AI.

*Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.
