Course content

This exciting MRes Computer Science course is designed to give you the opportunity to develop research skills in a computing area that meets your interests and career development needs. It allows you to combine material from any of our taught Masters courses in the computing suite with an extended research project over a one-year period.

Current demands are greater than ever for individuals to attain postgraduate levels of qualification in an increasingly competitive jobs market. As a result, the MRes Computer Science has been designed to meet the needs of students and employers, providing superior qualified graduates to national and international employers.

The MRes is divided into a taught element (60 credit points) and a laboratory-based research project (120 credit points).

This MSc Computer Science course offers the chance to study a range of topics in the computer science area, including principles of system design, software engineering, enterprise computing, computing architecture and applications of artificial intelligence. You will also have the opportunity to undertake an individual project, based on subjects that interest you, as well as research at the University or your industrial experience if you do a placement.

Demand for high-level software engineering skills continues to rise. Employers are finding it increasingly hard to recruit suitably qualified programmers and software technologists and so, with its emphasis on the application of the latest research ideas, the course will give you the skills to enjoy a highly rewarding career in the cutting-edge computing industry.

The MSc is divided into 60 credit point taught modules and the research project is worth 60 credit points.
