The Computing & Internet Systems MSc programme is an innovative computer science course that will improve your ability to solve challenging computing-related problems arising in the context of the internet. This course is an ideal study pathway for graduates who already possess a good foundation in computer science.
Rooted in the renowned research strengths of the Department of Informatics, this programme will introduce core topics like data structures and their implementation in C++, web infrastructure and software engineering of internet applications and then allow you to specialise through your choice of modules.
You will complete the course in one year, studying September to September and taking a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits, including 60 credits that will come from an individual project of around 15,000 words. You will also participate in a group project that will provide you with invaluable experience of working in a team to design, implement and document a substantial internet application.
For graduates with a substantial background in Computer Science, this programme will enhance your ability to solve a broad range of challenging computing-related problems and gain a broad introduction to aspects of the Internet. Research for your individual project will provide valuable preparation for a career in research or industry.
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.
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 individual project will be assessed through a 15,000-word dissertation.
