Course Summary:
At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We're proud to be 'University of the Year for Student Experience' in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Computer Science and Physics. This Combined Honours programme delivers high quality teaching and support shown by high scores in the National Student Survey (2016) and you will study in a first-rate environment with dedicated labs and cutting edge equipment. Our course provides high levels of contact time with academic staff engaged in world-leading research. This course is suited to those who would like to study Computer Science and Physics in equal weight and gain a deep understanding of a scientific domain in which they can apply their computing knowledge. In the Computer Science element of the course you will study areas such as AI, computer games development, human-computer interaction, software engineering and security. Students can follow a set of modules providing specialisms in information systems, smart systems, or creative computing. Physics is a fundamental, curiosity-driven discipline, with applications in many other areas of science and technology. You will gain an understanding of subject fundamentals, including quantum mechanics, relativity and electromagnetism, and apply this knowledge to solve problems, plan investigations and report your work. Studying Physics as a combined subject for three years, means that your degree will be accredited by the Institute of Physics. Our Combined degree builds the essential skills which are in demand from employers in fields of work as diverse as data analytics, games, teaching, engineering, space, telecommunications or the nuclear industries. Employers value versatile, numerate, digitally literate graduates with a breadth of experience which Computer Science and Physics provide. You might work as a research or data scientist, medical physicist, geophysicist, software engineer, IT consultant, systems analyst, programmer, web/ app developer, interface designer or radiation practitioner; or you might branch out to become a science writer, chartered accountant, patent lawyer, or air traffic controller. Many graduates of this course go on to study at master's or doctoral level. Recent Keele graduates have gone to work for companies as diverse as Apple, BAE Systems, Barclays, Capgemini, EA Games, Experian, Microsoft, Qinetiq and the Ministry of Defence.
