Course content

Work with tomorrow’s computer systems – you’ll benefit from the expertise in the Department of Informatics and our practical links in the field of software engineering.

Advances across platforms, networks and computers mean new challenges, dwarfing the problems computer science has solved up to now. In order to meet these challenges, computing needs skilled scientists to be involved in system design.

How will I study?

In the autumn and spring terms, you’ll study core modules and options. In the summer term, you’ll work on a supervised dissertation. This may be research or commercially driven, with a significant practical element.

Assessment is through:
-Coursework
-Unseen examinations
-Essays
-Programming projects
-A 12,000-word dissertation

MSc project

On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules. It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of:
-Project management
-Resourcing
-Planning
-Scheduling
-Documentation and communication
-Critical awareness and creative thinking

In Informatics, you are encouraged to seek a project with a commercial or industrial flavour. Finding an industrial sponsor or host is fine, though you will still need an academic supervisor.
