The MSc in Computer Science: Informatique is a Dual Degree scheme between Swansea University and Université Grenoble Alpes for computer science.
The MSc in Computer Science: Informatique Grenoble dual degree scheme is a two year programme that provides students with an opportunity to study in both Swansea, UK and Grenoble, France. One year of the Computer Science: Informatique programme students study at Swansea University and the second year of the programme students study at Université Grenoble Alpes. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive an MSc in Advanced Computer Science from Swansea University and a Master from Université Grenoble Alpes.
Modules on the MSc in Computer Science: Informatique may include:
Swansea University and Université Grenoble Alpes offer two Dual Award MSc degrees in Computer Science: Informatique. Both lead to degrees from both Universities and both are two academic years (September/October to June/July) long - one year in Swansea, and one year in Grenoble (normally taught in English though you can choose French if you are sufficiently fluent). However, the two schemes offer different specialisms in the second year - and your choice should be based on the specialisms that interest you.
The Grenoble route scheme starts in Grenoble and finishes in Swansea - and the available specialisms are:

The Department of Computer Science is well equipped for teaching, and is continually upgrading its laboratories to ensure equipment is up-to-date – equipment is never more than three years old, and rarely more than two. Currently, Computer Science students use three fully networked laboratories: one, running Windows; another running Linux; and a project laboratory, containing specialised equipment. These laboratories support a wide range of software, including the programming languages Java, C# and the .net framework, C, C++, Haskell and Prolog among many; integrated programme development environments such as Visual Studio and Netbeans; the widely-used Microsoft Office package; web access tools; and many special purpose software tools including graphical rendering and image manipulation tools; expert system production tools; concurrent system modelling tools; World Wide Web authoring tools; and databases.
As part of our expansion, we are building the Computational Foundry on our Bay Campus for computer and mathematical sciences. This development is exciting news for Swansea Mathematics who are part of the vibrant and growing community of world-class research leaders drawn from computer and mathematical sciences.
All Computer Science courses will provide you the transferable skills and knowledge to help you take advantage of the excellent employment and career development prospects in an ever growing and changing computing and ICT industry.
94% of our Postgraduate Taught Graduates were in professional level work or study [DLHE 14/15].
Some example job titles include:
The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 show that Swansea Computer Science ranked 11th in the UK for percentage of world-leading research, and 1st in Wales for research excellence. 40% of our submitted research assessed as world-leading quality (4*).
“One of the main reasons I chose Swansea was because of the excellent reputation of the Computer Science Department which is ranked among the top 25 in the UK. The Lecturers in the Department are excellent, and are equally very accessible to students. Many are actively involved in world class research. Their knowledge is shared with us in lectures.
I love Swansea. I have recently completed the MSc and intend to gain further experience in the software industry before pursuing a PhD at Swansea University. “
