This is a 4 year program for most students, including your year in placement.
Your first year in the University of East Anglia’s Computer Systems BEng program will be spent studying Computer Science, Programming and those aspects of Mathematics which you will need to make the most of later modules in the program.
In year 2, you’ll build on the core competencies you developed in year one, but you will also explore more advanced subjects like hardware architecture and computer networking systems, as well as electronics more generally.
Year 3 (Placement):
Your third year will be spent in an arranged 9-12 month paid placement in a company appropriate to your interests and special talents. UEA has a wide network of industry contacts and alumni, and will help you to find a placement that suits your intellectual and career needs very well.
In your final year you’ll complete an independent Computer Systems Engineering project dealing with your specialty in particular. You will also take several highly advanced modules, both core and elective.
