ACCESS PROCEDURE FOR THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE GROUPS

  • In the 2018-19 academic year, students will be able to enrol, by means of self-registration, in the English Language groups.
  • During the 2018/19 academic year, a limited number of places will be offered depending on the subject and degree of the student: said information is included in the document Student Distribution in groups, on page 3.
  • The order of self-registration is via access marks or average mark of the Academic Report, and grants priority to those students with the best marks.
  • Those students that have any incompatibility with the class timetable due to the English Language group, must submit a written letter requesting a change of group to the Secretary’s Office within the set timeline (5 September 2018 to 15 October 2018).
  • For those first-year or second-year students who register for all their subjects to be imparted in English, they can request the change in the rest of the subjects to Group 2 (first year) in Spanish or to Group 1 (second year).
  • All classes and evaluations are in English; the students must have sufficient knowledge of the language.
  • The student registered in the English Language group will be able to change to the group in Spanish by means of self-registration while it remains open.

JUSTIFICATION AND OBJECTIVES

The knowledge of a second language, and in the particular case of computer science studies, of the English language, enables a greater level of job skills to be acquired and provides a higher level of competitiveness for our students. On the other hand, on finding ourselves fully immersed in the European Higher Education Area, he mastery of the English language becomes essential as a basic means of intercommunity communication. The study and improvement of the English language in the first years of the degree courses will facilitate access for our students to studies in foreign universities by receiving grants and international agreements of double degrees. However, according to current regulations, all students of the University of Seville must, before finalizing their degree course, become qualified in a level of knowledge and skill in a second language equivalent, as a minimum, to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference of Languages (MCERL), which corresponds to a level of an independent user in a foreign language.

The School of Computer Engineering wants to offer its students the possibility of achieving this added value, thereby bringing them closer to the knowledge of the terminology and the language proper to computer science in the English language, while simultaneously pursuing their degree qualifications and attaining an improvement in their English. The possibility of expanding the knowledge of the English language in a transversal way across the various academic years is encouraged by promoting the development of curricular itineraries with subjects taught in English.

SYLLABUS FOR THE 2018-19 ACADEMIC YEAR

First-year course

The inclusion of the English language into the teaching of the ETSII syllabus is incorporated via an extra group, which is common to the Bachelor's degrees in Computer Science - Software Engineering (Ingeniería Informática- Ingeniería del Software), in Computer Science - Computer Engineering (Ingeniería Informática-Ingeniería de Computadores), and in Computer Science - Information Technology (Ingeniería Informática-Tecnologías Informáticas). When students pass any subject in this group then there is automatic recognition of this subject for any of the three degrees in which they are enrolled. In this group, 24 places are offered in total for the theory group; this means forming a smaller group, which can result in better personal monitoring of the students. The division and organization into practical and laboratory subgroups is similar to that of the other groups in Spanish, depending on the teaching model of each subject.

Specifically, the list of subjects taught in English is as follows:

  • Introduction to Discrete Mathematics (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Infinitesimal and Numerical Calculus (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Linear and Numerical Algebra (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Physical Foundations of Computing (First term, 6 ECTS)

Second-year course

At this level there are subjects common to the three aforementioned degrees and others exclusive to one or two degrees. There are a total of 24 places offered in a single group taught in English for each of the subjects listed below:

  • Digital Systems Design (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Computer Logic (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Computer Architecture (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Architecture and System Software Integration (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Discrete Mathematics (Second term, 6 ECTS)

Third-year course

At this level, the subjects are exclusive to each degree. A total of 24 places are offered in a single group taught in English for each of the subjects listed below:

Degree in Computer Science - Computer Engineering
  • Artificial Intelligence (First term, 6 ECTS, group shared with students on the degree course for Computer Science - Information Technology)
Degree in Computer Science - Software Engineering
  • Artificial Intelligence (First term, 6 ECTS, group shared with students on any of the three degree courses)
  • Design and Testing (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Design and Testing (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Requirements Engineering (First term, 6 ECTS)
  • Modelling and Graphic Visualization (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Modelling and Numerical Simulation (First term, 6 ECTS)
Degree in Computer Science - Information Technology
  • Artificial Intelligence (First term, 6 ECTS, group shared with students on any of the three degree courses)
  • Architecture of Distributed Systems (Second term, 6 ECTS)
  • Mathematics Applied to Information Systems (Second term, 6 ECTS)
