Course summary

About the course

The MSc in Software Engineering teaches the principles of modern software engineering, together with the tools, methods and techniques that support their application. It offers working professionals the opportunity to learn more about the technological advances that are changing their lives, through a course of part-time study at one of the world's leading universities.

The Department of Computer Science offers professional courses in more than 35 different subjects. from agile methods to object-oriented programming; from security principles to risk management; from software engineering mathematics to database design. To earn an MSc in Software Engineering, you must complete courses in ten different subjects, together with a project and dissertation.

Each course is delivered by an expert in the subject and is based around a single, intensive teaching week of classes, practical sessions, and group work; class sizes are kept small to facilitate interaction and to promote effective learning. Each subject is taught at least once a year - some are taught two or three times - and most can be studied in any order. Most students will spend three or four years completing the 10 courses required for the MSc.

Assessment

The assignment that is distributed on the last day of the teaching week must be submitted within a six-week time frame. This forms the basis for assessment; all assignments are treated as formal examinations of the University.

You will need to complete a short project and dissertation. The results of the project work are presented in a dissertation of 15,000 to 20,000 words, or 45 to 60 pages. This forms the basis for formal assessment of the project, just as the written assignments form the basis for assessment of the taught modules. The dissertation can be submitted at any time during the allowed period of study, although it is usually the last piece of work undertaken.

Graduate destinations

Students are usually in full-time employment and return to the same jobs after completing their degree.
