Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Advanced software technology is critical to the functioning of modern society. Computing systems can be found in science and engineering, medicine design and manufacturing, commerce and public service. Software technology dictates how these systems operate and how they are used.

The MSc Advanced Software Technology is suitable if you are a Computer Science or Software Engineering graduate or if you have relevant experience from a first degree. It may also be suitable if you have substantial experience of working in a related environment and wish to develop your knowledge.

Our brand new £32.5m Computational Foundry lies at the heart of this course. Sophisticated teaching and research equipment include a Vision and Biometric Lab, a Maker Lab, a Theory Lab, a Cyber Security/Networking Lab, a User Lab and a Visualisation Suite.

You will choose from a diverse range of computer science subjects. These include artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies and operation systems, big data, web application development and graphics processor programming.

Broad learning in the first part of the course is followed by a substantial project module in the second part. This puts you in a strong position for seeking employment or undertaking further study.
