Course Summary

Develop sound theoretical and practical abilities in software design, development and experimentation, to become an innovative computing professional.This course will give you the skills and knowledge necessary to apply valid computer science methods to new and emerging computing problems. These abilities are highly valued by employers.You’ll gain a solid foundation in computer science with rigorous theory and practical experience. The course combines software systems design, software development, interaction design, artificial intelligence, computational mathematics, computer graphics and vision.In the first year, you’ll learn the basics of computer science, including mathematics and programming skills, followed by more advanced and specialised units in the second and final years. In the second year, you will complete a group project with other students to design and build an interactive application. In the final year, you will choose optional units alongside an individual project that combines your interests in a specific area of computer science. You’ll regularly meet with an academic who specialises in your chosen field.The Master of Computing (MComp) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to and integration with research groups in the Department.
