Course details

The course consists of twelve core modules, including a group design project, plus an individual research project. The course is delivered via a combination of structured lectures, tutorial sessions and computer based workshops.

The C++ and Java programming modules, combined with the Software Engineering course, provide the basis of the academic programme and act as a starting point for the more specialist modules encountered later on. The various computational technology platforms are then introduced, giving students both theoretical and hands-on experience of programming in multi-core, General Purpose CPU, distributed and Cloud computing environments.

Group project

The process of software production is rarely an activity undertaken by an individual developer. In today’s software industry, many different specialists are required to contribute to the creation of software. To ensure a high level of quality in the final product, different roles and responsibilities must be brought together into a single team and therefore clear lines of communication between team members are crucial if the project is to be a success.

An important part of this MSc course is the group project, in which we define a realistic problem and ask each group to propose and implement a solution. It is generally a 6 week project taking place between February and March. Members of each group must decide how to organise themselves, assigning roles to each person.

The group project is an opportunity for you to experience first-hand how a software development team is organised and how the different roles contribute to the final product. This is a chance for you to develop an insight into the organisation of development teams in industry, and allows you to understand what is expected from you once you enter employment.

Part-time students are encouraged to participate in a group project as it provides a wealth of learning opportunities. However, an option of an individual dissertation is available if agreed with the Course Director.

Individual project

The individual research project allows you to delve deeper into an area of specific interest. All projects are based on real research, whether it is an area of interest for members of the department, or as part of an active research project funded by industry. In some cases our industrial partners sponsor specific research projects into real world problems or areas of development that are of direct interest to them. In recent years, students have proposed their own ideas for their research project. You will generally begin to consider the research project after completing 3-4 modules - it then runs concurrently with the rest of your work.

For part-time students it is common that their research thesis is undertaken in collaboration with their place of work.

Assessment
