Course content

The Advanced Computing with Management MSc programme is an innovative computer science course, combining high-level programming with an introduction to core management theories and skills in an IT context, making this an ideal study pathway for engineers who already possess a good foundation in programming. This course aims to improve your abilities to solve advanced computational problems by gaining knowledge of data structures, design quantitative analysis of algorithms, their applications and implementation.

Key benefits

  • Located in central London, giving access to major libraries and leading scientific societies, including the Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) , and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
  • You will learn advanced practical techniques and implementation skills for solving complex computational problems.
  • You will develop critical awareness and appreciation of the changing role of computing in society and motivating you to pursue further professional development and research.
  • Frequent access to speakers of international repute through seminars and external lectures, enabling you to keep abreast of emerging knowledge in advanced computing and related fields.
  • The Department of Informatics has a reputation for delivering research-led teaching and project supervision from leading experts in their field.

Description

The Advanced Computing with Management MSc is an innovative course designed to provide you with an in-depth understanding of management roles within the IT industry. The programme will also equip you with essential research, analytical and critical thinking skills.

The course is made up of optional and required modules, completed in one year studying from September to September. You will take modules totalling 180 credits to meet the requirements of the qualification, of which 60 will come from an individual project of around 15000 words.

You will study a range of required modules such as Principles of Management, Algorithm Design and Analysis, and Data Structures and their Implementation in C++ and you will choose further related modules to support your study interests.

Course purpose

For graduates in computer science, mathematics, science or engineering with good knowledge of computer programming, this MSc will enhance your ability to solve advanced computational problems and impart skills necessary for algorithm implementation within the context of software development and with core management theories. Research for your individual project will provide valuable preparation for a career in research or industry.

Course format and assessment

Teaching

We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the programme. You will also be expected to undertake a significant amount of independent study.

Assessment

The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, essays, coursework and individual or group projects and oral presentations. The research project will be assessed on one 15,000-word dissertation.  

Career prospects

Our graduates have continued on to have very successful careers in general software consultancy companies, in specialised software development companies and IT departments of large institutions (financial, telecommunications and public sector). Their jobs involve specialist programming and problem-solving as well more conventional software development, maintenance and project management roles.

While some of our graduates have chosen to go on into academic and industrial research in software engineering, bio-informatics, algorithms and computer networks.
