Course summary

Overview

As computing continues to evolve at a remarkable pace, the expertise to harness the latest technology becomes more vital for organisations in every sector. Our MSc Computer Science course provides that expertise – helping you develop the specialist skills for a career in computing.

On this Computer Science masters, you’ll explore themes around object-oriented programming, advanced computer networks, cloud software development and information systems and databases. You will learn advanced concepts, techniques and technologies to equip you for the practical side of investigating an issue and creating a system or solution to match. Through this, you’ll gain a set of skills made for the modern professional world of computing.

You’ll also have the flexibility to set the direction for your postgraduate studies with a masters project of your own design. While you’ll have the one-to-one support of your supervisor, it’s a solo project – as much about developing computing skills as it is about building confidence and autonomy, vital skills for the workplace.

By the time you’re finished, you’ll be equipped with both theoretical understanding and practical abilities in computer science – ready to apply your advanced knowledge to real-world situations.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The advanced skills and understanding you’ll develop on our MSc course can open doors to roles across a range of industries, in both the public and private sector. Study with us and you’ll follow in the footsteps of graduates who have gone on to become software developers, programmers, app developers, web developers and software testers (to name a few), working with the likes of Barclays, Autotrader, AZoNetwork and Realtime Despatch.

Careers support is available from the moment you join us, throughout your time here, and for up to three years after the completion of your course. We have a range of services available through the Department of Computing and Mathematics and the University Careers Service including dedicated careers and employability advisors.
