Course summary

About the course

Computer science has an ever-greater influence on our lives, and the technological breakthroughs of today shape the way we live tomorrow. Opportunities continue to grow for highly skilled practitioners, and the taught Masters course allows you to make great advancements on your existing skills and knowledge. By the end of the programme you will be equipped to thrive in one of the fastest moving industries in the world.

You will learn specialist computer science techniques and fundamental theories, but you’ll also have the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice by developing applications and working with real software. We cover a range of topics, including real time graphics and computational science, and you can choose from options including artificial intelligence, robotics and visualisation – built upon a solid foundation of good programming skills.

Computer Science at Hull aims to create an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft’s DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the University, you can download the software free of charge.

What you'll study

This MSc programme is designed to support students with various levels of computing and programming practice experience. However, it is particularly suited to those with significant experience of writing code.

There is a focus on the transition to further postgraduate study, with suitable content on professional skills and the importance of ethics for practising computer scientists.

Our degrees are accredited by the British Computer Society, The Chartered Institute for IT. The MSc programme fully meets the academic requirements for Chartered IT Professional and partial Chartered Engineer status. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Future prospects

The MSc Advanced Computer Science programme is designed to open pathways to postgraduate research, as well as a wide range of careers. The computational science module introduces concepts and ideas which will help prepare you for further study; the industrial placement option, meanwhile, will enable you to practise your skills and knowledge of computer science in situ, giving you a useful insight and advantage when it comes to starting your career.

We have a range of inspirational extra-curricular activities including the Three Thing Game, Imagine Cup Worldwide Software Development Challenge, Really Useful Seminars and Global Game Jam. They are designed to boost your CV and employability, and taking part costs very little.

Our MSc graduates typically gain roles including: applications developer; business systems analyst; computer analyst; computer programmer; computer operations manager; data management analyst; database assistant; developer support engineer; games programmer; information manager; IT design; IT systems manager; IT technician; IT user support; mobile developer; operations director; software designer; software developer; software engineer; solutions developer; systems engineer; technical sales; technical specialist; and web developer.
