Course Summary

This MSc equips you to work with tomorrow’s computer systems. Advances across platforms, networks and computers mean new challenges, dwarfing the problems computer science has solved up to now. In order to meet these challenges computing needs skilled scientists to be involved in system design. Our courses are designed for those who want to develop a career in the IT industry, research or academia. You will work in an intellectually stimulating environment with research ranging from computer science to digital media to e-business.

Assessment is through: coursework and essays; unseen examinations; programming projects; a 12,000-word dissertation. Students are highly employable, with 95% of recent graduates’ job roles being at professional or managerial level. Students will leave the MSc equipped with the skills for a career in software and systems design, including roles requiring cutting-edge specialisation such as in mobile or cloud computing.
