Course summary

From day one you’ll be immersed in the expertise of our world-leading research team who are working at the cutting edge of computing science.

You’ll study key core subjects including our flagship module Advanced Programming Concepts and Techniques. Your lectures for this important area will cover historical, established and upcoming programming languages, functional languages, assembly and intermediate languages, code optimisation, high performance computing, software testing and modern frameworks. The finale of this module will see you produce a prototype of a professional standard software product to tackle a real world problem. You’ll develop this in groups or individually, following industrial software engineering practice and guidelines.

Your compulsory Research Techniques module will help you master crucial skills such as writing scientific reports and analysing and critically reviewing scientific publications. You will also develop your ability to analyse and process big data resources using basic and advanced statistical methods.
