Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Data Science

Data science is the fastest-growing industry in the world right now, and data engineers are right there at the front of the pack. Data engineers focus on the construction of systems that can house massive amounts of data. Big data engineers are skilled as software developers, and they have to be proficient in coding, an excellent data scientist, and an engineer all at the same time. This is a multi-faceted role involving identifying, extracting, and delivering valid data in a usable format. A big data engineer deals with cloud computing environments, assists in documenting requirements, resolves ambiguities in the data, and more.

This degree will give you the required technical skills in software design, computer programming, data(data architecture, data structures, database management, database principles, data visualization, business data analytics, data mining, forecasting and predictive modelling) math, physics, statistics, practical and soft skills.

Almost every field needs big data engineers who work as statisticians, computer programmers, and computer and information research scientists, as they produce insights that are useful in business, finance, government, healthcare, science, telecommunications, and other industries.

Computer Science & Design

The combined major in computer science and design integrates fundamental design courses with a strong programming foundation. This programme offers professional training in both fields, integrating design courses — fundamental through advanced — with a strong foundation in computer programming. It includes interaction design, graphic and information design, or experience design. Students pursuing this degree often have an interest in human-centred design methods used in developing digital interfaces and applications.

During this course you will learn the fundamentals of computer science and advanced programming skills, and benefit from specific skills in relation to game design. The course also relates to real-time computer graphics, artificial intelligence, animation, virtual reality and augmented reality.

Technology and creativity represent one of the most powerful combinations in the current job market. By the end of this course, you will be a hybrid programmer and designer who can navigate both ends of the scientific and creative spectrum on any software development team. Graduates can pursue a number of career paths in game and software development and experience design as systems designers, game designers, and game play programmer.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

In the last decade there have been astonishing advances in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning that are promising to transfer the way we interpret and use data. These advances are already finding their way into our daily lives in areas that include automated language translation, speech recognition and generation, recommender systems, face identification and other applications that we may not even be aware of. It is also allowing us to think about the nature of intelligence from different perspectives to understand the way that humans perform tasks, and support our abilities.

This programme offers students an opportunity to learn a variety of foundational, computational and applied topics in artificial intelligence and machine learning with core knowledge in algorithms, mathematics and applications, that can be applied, immediately in the professional workplace, or used as a launching point for more in-depth and expansive knowledge or specialized careers in the field. You will learn about what current generation AIs can and cannot do, about contemporary challenges, and about societal and ethical considerations so that you can make informed decisions about how AI techniques should be used in the real world. This course is ideal for building existing quantitative skills to become leaders in the field.

The demand for qualified experts in artificial intelligence is high; AI jobs are amongst the best paid in the industry, and a solid background in AI is highly desirable in many research disciplines. Our degree opens the door to a wide range of careers in industry and academia. Graduates can join large companies or start their own business in management consultancy, computer gaming, and special effects, while others have followed careers in banking and finance as software engineers, applications developer, cyber security specialist, technology analyst, video games start-up.

Civil Environmental Engineering

Civil engineers are responsible for designing so much of our built environment. Today, we rely more than ever on inventive and resourceful engineers to design, build and maintain our sophisticated environment and infrastructure. Civil engineers help to build a better world – from constructing bridges, roads, pipelines, processing plants, buildings and harbours that connect communities to creating solutions to respond to the most pressing global challenges.

Studying civil engineering will provide you with skills in design, construction, management and sustainability of the infrastructure that holds our country together. It will equip you with subject-specific technical reasoning to apply physics, maths and mechanics to structural design, in applying your judgement as an engineer under pressure, and in development of effective communication skills when managing large projects, on-site teams and client requirements. Transferable skills you can gain from civil engineering include team-working, problem-solving, critical thinking and the ability to interpret data.

You will learn through lectures, tutorials, group practicals, lab work and take part in field courses ranging from geological studies to surveying. Making sure that what you learn with us is relevant, up to date and what employers are looking for is our priority, so courses are reviewed and enhanced on an ongoing basis.

Civil engineers are employed in construction, in the road and rail industries, in the oil and gas industry, in telecoms, in engineering consultancy, in government, and in the finance industry (particularly in accountancy and management consultancy).
