Course summary

The MSc in Advanced Computer Science gives the in-depth knowledge and cutting edge skills required for careers where advanced computer systems are used to solve difficult business goals, control complex processes and equipment, and undertake deep and detailed analysis, management, and presentation of data.

You will gain advanced knowledge of the principles and concepts of Internet technologies, software development, and intelligent systems. Alongside this you will develop the practical skills that are necessary for the design, build, deployment and evaluation of distributed information systems and complex, Internet-enabled business applications.

The course covers a wide range of practical skills and theory, from a fast-track programming and systems design course through to advanced data analysis and the use of private cloud hardware. During the course you will learn many techniques, including manipulating large amounts of data, designing and building large applications, leveraging and provisioning cloud services and developing autonomous systems.

Assessment

The taught modules are mainly assessed by coursework. For example in the Statistical Techniques for Data Analytics: students analyse a large dataset (using, for example, R and/or SQL) and create a report of their findings which is then assessed. Some modules are assessed by examinations. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
