    Hi there!

    Chris here, a first year BSc (Hons) Computer Science with placement student. If you want, I can answer some of your questions on the course so far?

    With Easter holidays approaching on Friday, I'm about halfway through my second semester of first year, so I can certainly cast an opinion on the course to far!

    I've certainly enjoyed it so far. It's been much more varied than I had anticipated, which is a bonus. I did Computing A level which was what sparked my interest in the subject and so far it has consisted of some extension of A level knowledge, as well as new content.

    There is coursework of some kind in every unit ranging from programming tasks to essays to group projects. I like the variety.

    Spoiler:
    Show

    CM10194: Systems Architecture 1
    Layers and abstractions of modern computer systems architectures from machine level upwards. Representations, storage, management and transmission of data on the computer and management of resources.

    CM10196: Discrete Mathematics for Computation
    Propositional and predicate calculus (including basic logic).
    Sets and Relations Mappings and functions (e.g., injections, surjections, bijections).
    Elementary number theory (e.g. prime numbers, induction and modular arithmetic, rational numbers).

    CM10227: Principles of Programming 1
    Introduction to C. Sequence, selection, iteration and recursion. Introduction to object-oriented development. Objects, classes, inheritance and polymorphism. Comparison of procedural and object programming. Introductions to abstract data types. Data Organisation: Basic data structures: lists, stacks and queues

    CM10251: Computing as a Science and Engineering Discipline
    Systems engineering and design methods, such as Object/Class diagrams, UML, iterative software development, code reuse and software maintenance.
    Testing and debugging: unit testing, tracing by hand, print statements, etc.

    CM10195: Systems Architecture 2:
    Operating systems and network interaction. Understanding storage, management and transmission of data on the computer and management of resources.

    CM10197: Analytical Mathematics for Computation:
    Linear Algebra elementary matrices and vectors, Gaussian elimination, inverses, determinants, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, equations of lines and planes in space. Series: sequences and series, convergence, real numbers, derivatives, absolute convergence, comparison and integral tests, Taylor/Maclaurin series.


    I found the first maths unit (CM10196) quite abstract and difficult to understand the later content at first but got the hang of it soon enough! CM10251 is a year long module and was interesting to discover the different methods of designing software. Personally, the programming modules have been most interesting as they have introduced us to C and Java development in quite a head-first practical way which has meant people are all at more or less the same level by Christmas.

    You can find out more here: http://www.bath.ac.uk/catalogues/201...oglist-ug.html

    Hope this helps!

    It's not hugely diverse - the uni students (and from what I've seen, other people that live in the city) are predominantly white but there are a fair few international students.

    Hi,

    For my course (International Management) the 2015 intake represents sixteen different countries between around only forty students. I would consider this very diverse, and I really benefit and enjoy being around people with such different backgrounds. We have alumni around the world, as I require a placement abroad as part of my course this can be incredibly helpful.

    The city itself is home to a lot of tourism and attracts people from around the world. It is hard to describe diversity in a city, but I have certainly never felt that it is not diverse.

    Hi,

    I am a first year International Management student here at the University of Bath, we follow the same programme as Management with Marketing in the first year. I also live in Quads this year and love it.

    I have a thread here for Management students so please feel free to check it out and let me know if there is anything that I can do to help.

    Hi,

    There will no doubt be a 'Bath Freshers 2016' group pop up closer to the time, I will post it on here when I come across it. The event is in the very early stages of planning at the moment, so it might be a while. I found it difficult to talk with others properly before results day anyway, stick to the Student Room for now!
