The world of computing is competitive and diverse. Our computing course allows students to tailor their postgraduate studies to match their individual interests and professional aspirations.
A uniquely flexible course, the Computing MSc consists of a core module in research methods, an individual project and a range of option modules taken from our other courses.
The structure of the course allows you to freely choose your learning path, including the theoretical-to-practical balance of learning. It gives you the opportunity to sell a unique set of skills to potential employers.
Ultimately, the course aims to equip students with the skills required to develop viable software solutions.
Each module is organised into teaching periods that comprise workshops, seminars, lectures and group exercises. These end with a period of consolidation and coursework-based assessment.
On completion of the taught modules, you will undertake a project that applies all of your developed skills and knowledge to real-world industry.
You will study two core modules and select five optional modules. These will allow you to tailor the course to your own particular interests.
