Course summary

The Advanced Computer Science MSc course will enable you to develop a high level of understanding and technical skill at the leading edge of the subject.

This course has been specifically designed to address the pace of change in this vibrant discipline by giving you breadth of knowledge in several areas, a range of advanced skills, and the expertise necessary to engage in work at the forefront of the application of Computer Science.

You will gain experience of working as part of a highly-specialised research group through the significant individual project which is an integral part of the course.

This is a full-time, one year taught course, intended for students who already have a good first degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or a closely related discipline, who would like to develop a deeper level of understanding and technical skill.

The course will build on your existing strong foundation in Computer Science. It will enable you to undertake more senior roles in the IT industry, engage in cutting-edge Research and Development or progress to a Computer Science PhD once you have successfully completed the course.

Course content

This course is heavily based on research, and all optional modules are led by academic staff who are active in that particular research area. The modules build upon the work currently being undertaken within the Department, connecting you directly to our research.

Industrial practice also strongly influences the content of our courses. We have active industrial partners and an Industrial Advisory board to ensure that what you learn will be relevant and applicable to the workplace, once you leave the University.

Careers and skills

The course is well-rounded and will allow you to gain an advanced knowledge of current Computer Science either across a wide range of topics or with a more specialist knowledge according to the specified themes. This will prepare you for either a career in research or more senior roles in industry.
