Combining the study of computer science and electronics, and with no requirement for A-level maths, our BSc Computers with Electronics is a great way to investigate computer hardware and software, operating systems, and digital systems design.
Large parts of everyday life depend on computing, electronics and telecommunications. There’s no longer a distinct line between the disciplines – advances in electronics have made the internet, innovative telecommunications, and inexpensive computing products possible. Our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence in both disciplines.
In particular, you focus on:
- Digital systems design at gate level, and how complex designs can be constructed from basic components
- Combinatorial and sequential logic
- Circuit design
- The functionality of modern operating systems
- C Programming
Our School is a community of scholars leading the way in technological research and development. Today’s computer scientists are creative people who are focused and committed, yet restless and experimental.
More than two-thirds of our research rated “world-leading” or “internationally excellent” (REF 2014).
With plenty of opportunity for practical work in which you apply your theoretical knowledge, you graduate ready to move into a range of roles in the technology sector.
Programming at Essex
Teaching someone to programme is about opening a door. In your first year at Essex you will study a module that introduces you to programming using C. We assess your ability to think in a programmatic way in the very first week of term and if you require additional support, we offer classes which will boost your skills and confidence with programming.
