Course summary

Overview

To meet the increasing demand for MSc students to have industry experience, we have introduced this new two-year MSc programme. Designed for graduates of the highest calibre the MSc will develop advanced knowledge and skills and give you the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice through valuable work experience during a one year industrial placement.

The Advanced Computer Science with Internet Economics MSc is intended for you if you already have a first degree in Computer Science, or in Economics, or a closely related subject.

The programme is suitable for you if you wish to extend your knowledge with more advanced specialised material reflecting current research at the cutting edge of the discipline of Algorithmic Game Theory, which lies at the intersection of economics and computer science.

It is a novel and unique programme, the first of its kind in Europe, offering a range of modern topics that range from optimisation and computational game theory to network games, and modern applications in electronic commerce, such as Google sponsored search auctions.

It is offered by the Computer Science Department, with contributions from the University of Liverpool Management School.

The two-year MSc programme shares the same taught modules with its one-year equivalent. However, unlike the one-year MSc which includes an MSc project over the summer, the two-year programme includes an industrial project and placement in year two (either in the UK or overseas). The placement is typically 30 weeks from September to June.

This opportunity to work in industry will help you strengthen your career options by:

Undertaking the project work in an industrial setting
Applying theory learnt in the classroom to real-world practice
Developing communications and interpersonal skills Building networks and knowledge which will be invaluable throughout your career.

During the placement year you will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost your CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

The University of Liverpool has a dedicated team to help students find a suitable placement. Preparation for the placement is provided by the University’s Careers and Employability Service (CES) who assist students in finding a placement, help students produce a professional CV and prepare students for placement interviews.
