Master of Science (MSc)

Who is this course for?

This MSc is not about developing algorithms and coding. You will work with technology but you aren’t learning to be a technician. During this course you will learn to design a computer business system and evaluate the information infrastructure to find out if the system works.

You will need a good undergraduate degree as well as being motivated, tenacious, and have the ability to adapt to constant change and tight deadlines.


As a City graduate you will leave with front-line knowledge and be highly employable across many sectors, including software houses, consultancy companies, multinational manufacturers and large retailers.

With the insight you will gain from major areas of research including software engineering, human-computer interaction and artificial intelligence, you will be able to assimilate your skills and offer prospective employers a future focused mindset.

Positions you will be qualified for include company director, software developer, business analyst and systems analyst.

Your course will help you build a strong peer network as well as a solid list of contacts for your future career development.
