About Computer Architectures
Masters degrees in Computer Architectures equip postgraduates with advanced knowledge of the methods to analyse the function, organisation and implementation of computer systems.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for this field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include a suitable undergraduate degree, such as Computer Science or Systems Engineering.
Computer Architectures are present in all aspects of the modern human world. From mobile computer systems and smart device technology, to human-computer interaction such as intelligent artificial limbs and gaming devices.
Training will cover methods in digital design, construction technologies and systems modelling to analyse computer communications, wireless networks, internet technology and more.
Research is typically refined through projects and industrial work placements. For example, you may work to develop algorithms and bioinformatics systems for use in medicine. Or, you may explore artificial intelligence architectures and their functions in security systems or intellectual property (IP).
Careers are highly varied, and can range from roles in medicine, veterinary health and biological conservation, through to renewable resources, banking and financial systems, and government surveillance.
