The student who enrols for the bachelor's programme in Computing Science will follow a programme of 180 credits, usually spread over 3 years. This programme entitles access to the master's of Computing Science for 120 credits, usually spread over 2 years.
The programme includes a major of 150 credits and a minor of 30 credits.
- The major consists of a general polyvalent course of 82 credits and a course in Computing Science of 68 credits.The general polyvalent studies provide a solid training in Economics, Management and Human Sciences (34 credits) and in Mathematics (32 credits).
- The proposed minor will be a minor " imported" from another bachelor's programme (e.g. a minor in Management, a minor in Linguistics, a minor in Bio-engineering, a minor in Philosophy, a minor in Mathematics and Mathematical Applications, or a minor in Statistics). Alternatively, the student could choose a coherent set of options offered at UCL, subject to the approval of the Committee for the Bachelor of Computing Science.
A minor in Business Studies, specific to the bachelor's of Computing Science, has been jointly drawn up with the Faculty of Economics, Social and Political Sciences. In addition to the clear interest this holds for those future computer specialists wishing to strengthen the "business" dimension of the course, it also entitles access to the master's of Business Science.
A significant part of the course in Computing Science will focus on acquiring learning techniques through solving problems. In other words, the elaboration of two projects will facilitate the integration of the various elements of the course work covered and confront the student with the patterns and aspects of small-scale projects (via laboratory work in the first year), and then medium-scale projects (via a project elaborated during the second quadrimester of the second year).
The Computing-related components of the programme fulfil the standard norms of the curricula determined by the international company experts in this domain (ACM, IEEE). This fosters student mobility to or from the numerous universities offering programmes which conform to these norms.
