Course summary

OVERVIEW

Computing has become part of our lives, fundamental to almost every organisation in almost every industry. That makes an understanding of how these vital systems work a valuable tool that can pave the way to a range of exciting careers.

Our MSc in Computing provides that tool. It’s a conversion course made for graduates from other disciplines, but it’s just as useful for professionals looking for a skills boost and professional progression.

To start with, you’ll learn about object-oriented and web programming, information systems and digital media systems. Then you can chart your own direction – choosing two units, in areas like enterprise programming or mobile computing. From there, you’ll tackle your masters' project. While you’ll have plenty of support along the way, it’s a solo project designed to develop confidence, autonomy and self-sufficiency – qualities that can take you far in the workplace.

So, by the time you leave us, you’ll not only know the theory about developing programmes, navigating computing networks or managing multimedia technology – you’ll also understand how it all fits in the real world.

Whether you’re planning to continue your studies up to PhD level, or you’re anxious to get to work, our MSc in Computing can help you make it happen.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This MSc course will give you the kind of advanced skills and understanding that can open door a wide range of roles, across a wide range of industries. From database development and software consultancy to IT network management or big data, there are plenty of areas for you to pursue. Study with us and you’ll follow in the footsteps of graduates who have gone on to become software developers, web developers and more – working with the likes of Barclays, Autotrader, AZoNetwork and Realtime Despatch.

Your masters could also provide a foundation for further studies – going on to do a PhD – whether staying with Manchester Met or going elsewhere.

You’ll have specialist support of our careers service from day one, and for three years after you leave us. Between the services available through the Department of Computing and Mathematics and the University’s Career Service, you’ll have access to everything from employer events and careers fair to employability skills workshops and dedicated advisors.
