Course summary

Overview

Our Advanced Computing MSc provides knowledge and experience of computing at an advanced level. The programme allows students to select modules on a wide range of advanced computer science subjects, so that they can build a programme that suits their interests and career aspirations.

Course detail

Rooted in the renowned research strengths of the Department of Informatics, this course enables you to study a wide variety of topics in advanced computing while allowing you to specialise through your choice of modules. You will learn advanced practical techniques and implementation skills for solving complex computational problems.

Course format and assessment

We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15-credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module, including independent study. The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, coursework, in-class tests, individual projects and oral presentations. The individual project will be assessed through a dissertation.

Career prospects

Our graduates have progressed to have very successful careers in general software consultancy companies, in specialised software development companies and IT departments of large institutions (financial, telecommunications and public sector). Their jobs involve specialist programming and problem-solving as well more conventional software development, maintenance and project management roles. Some of our graduates have chosen to pursue academic and industrial research in software engineering, bioinformatics, algorithms and computer networks. King's Careers & Employability Centre run tailored sessions for Informatics students and a careers programme which includes skills sessions and visits from top employers.
