Course summary

The MSc in Computer Science at Oxford has been designed to teach a range of advanced topics and a carefully selected core of foundational subjects to graduates of computer science and other numerate disciplines. The course aims to provide the foundation for a professional career in the computing-based industries, including telecommunications, process control, business-, mission-, and safety-critical fields; to enhance the skills of a professional who is already working in one of these industries; to provide a foundation for research into the theory and practice of programming and the design of computer-based systems; to present knowledge, experience, reasoning methods and design and implementation techniques that are robust and forward-looking. You will develop knowledge and understanding of a formal disciplined approach to computer science, a range of relevant concepts, tools and techniques, the principles underpinning these techniques and the ability to apply them in novel situations. On subsequent employment, you will be able to select techniques most appropriate to your working environment, adapt and improve them as necessary, establish appropriate design standards for hardware and software, train colleagues and subordinates in the observance of sound practices, and keep abreast of research and development.
