Course summary

Computer Science is playing a key role in many industries all around the world. Developments in artificial intelligence, apps and cyber security are changing how we live, work and socialise. This course will give you the skills and knowledge to prepare you for a range of high-level careers.

Core modules will develop your knowledge in key topics such as UX design, artificial intelligence and data analysis. Optional modules give you the flexibility to broaden your knowledge in specialist areas, including machine learning and autonomous robotics.

You have the option to tailor your degree with AI once you have registered. During your study, you are required to study 40 credits of AI modules, as well as to undertake the Research Project in Computer Science (AI) module. This allows you to graduate with the degree titled MSc Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence).

Research project

You will undertake an individual research project in an area of your choice. This could be in collaboration with an industry partner to build your experience and connections. You can also work with one of our world-leading research groups. Previous projects have included:

  • Autonomous robot navigation and path following via RFID tag detection
  • Deep Learning for Plant Phenotyping
  • A multi-platform mobile application to prevent and cure obesity in Mexico
  • Real world neural networks for interactive music composition in real time


The Artificial Intelligence pathway allows you to graduate with a degree titled 'MSc Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence)'. You will study 30 credits of compulsory AI modules and undertake an AI-focused research project.

Another pathway is offered for those without a computer programming background. This includes compulsory modules in fundamental mathematics and computer science.


This course prepares its students for careers in advanced software development, particularly where reliability and efficiency are vital requirements. Its graduates are likely to assume leading roles in major software-development projects in one of the areas of specialisation.

This course also provides an excellent foundation for further study and you may decide to progress to a PhD in order to continue your research.
