Course summary

OVERVIEW

Our postgraduate Computing course allows you to study computing at a greater depth, develop your research and analytical skills and complete an individual thesis investigating an area you are particularly interested in.

This course has an Industry Placement Option where you can investigate an area you are interested in, as well as the placement option.

Course Details

There are two ways to study this course. You can take the general pathway, giving you a rounded computing education and a broad qualification, or you can take the specialist pathways to focus on a defined section of computing and meet your career aspirations. While the pathway option is mostly technical in focus, you will also learn about the business context and develop interpersonal skills that are vital to problem solving in business.

DO YOU OFFER A PLACEMENT OPTION ON COMPUTING MSC?

You can elect to participate in a Work Placement - completing the modules ‘Career Futures: Employability Skills’ and ‘Work-Based Project’. The year in industry will develop your real-world experience and you will undertake an applied research project that identifies and provides a response to an industry specific problem.

Your placement will last between six and 12 months, it will need to be appropriate to your level of study and subject area; you should also be paid for this work. We will support you in finding and securing a suitable placement opportunity, however it must be noted that placements are highly competitive and there is no guarantee of a placement offer being made by an employer. If you cannot secure a placement, you would join the non-placement route instead.

You will also complete a work-based Research Project before going on placement.
