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).
  • The Department of Informatics has a reputation for delivering research-led teaching and project supervision from leading experts in their field.
  • 92 per cent of research outputs ranked as world leading or internationally excellent – confirming the department’s position as a world-class institution for research in Computer Science (REF 2014).

Description

The Advanced Software Engineering MSc focuses on contemporary techniques for the development of software systems, with an emphasis on the construction and management of large and secure software systems. You will learn advanced software engineering skills preparing you for leading creative roles in the professional and research communities. The course will also equip you with essential research, analytical and critical thinking skills.

Teaching

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

You are expected to spend approximately 10 hours work per credit for each module you attend in your degree, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15-credit module. These hours cover every aspect of the module.

Assessment

The primary method of assessment for this course is a combination of written examinations, coursework, in-class tests, individual projects and oral presentations. The individual project will be assessed through a dissertation.

Career prospects

The Careers Service and the Department of Informatics run a careers programme for Informatics students, which includes skills sessions and visits from top employers.

Our graduates have very successful careers working for software consultancy companies, specialised software development businesses and the IT departments of large institutions (financial, telecommunications and public sector). Recent employers include Ernst & Young, Accenture and M-Netics.

Other graduates have entered into the field of academic and industrial research in areas such as software engineering, algorithms and computer networks.
