Course summary

OVERVIEW

As computing continues to evolve at a remarkable pace, the expertise to harness the latest technology becomes more vital every day for organisations in every sector. Our Advanced Computer Science masters provides expertise – helping you develop the specialist skills for a career in computing.

You’ll cover core units exploring themes around high-performance computing, big data, data science, advanced networks and operating systems. From there, you’ll have the flexibility to set the direction for your studies – first, with two option units covering areas like enterprise programming, cryptography or mobile computing, then with a masters project of your own design. While you’ll have the one-to-one support of your supervisor, it’s a solo project – as much about developing computing skills as it is about building confidence and autonomy, vital skills for the workplace.

By the time you’re finished, you’ll be equipped with both theoretical understanding and practical abilities in computer science ­– ready to apply your advanced knowledge to real-world situations. In short, you’ll be ready to begin a rewarding career path in the field.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The advanced skills and understanding you’ll develop on our MSc course can open the doors to roles across a range of industries, in both the public and private sector. Study with us and you’ll follow in the footsteps of graduates who have gone on to become software developers, programmers, app developers, web and multimedia developers and software testers (to name a few), working with the likes of Barclays, Autotrader, AZoNetwork and Realtime Despatch.

Your masters could also provide a foundation for further studies – going on to do a PhD – whether staying with Manchester Met or going elsewhere.

You’ll have specialist careers support of our careers service from day one, and for three years after you leave us. Between the services available through the Department of Computing and Mathematics and the University’s Career Service, you’ll have access to everything from employer events and careers fair to employability skills workshops and dedicated advisors. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
