Computing has become part of our lives, fundamental to almost every organisation in almost every industry. That makes an understanding of how these vital systems work a valuable tool that can pave the way to a range of exciting careers.

Our MSc in Computing provides that tool. It’s a conversion course made for graduates from other disciplines, but it’s just as useful for professionals looking for a skills boost and professional progression. 

To start with, you’ll learn about object oriented and web programming, information systems and digital media systems. Then you can chart your own direction – choosing two units, in areas like enterprise programming or machine learning. From there, you’ll tackle your masters project. While you’ll have plenty of support along the way, it’s a solo project designed to develop confidence, autonomy and self-sufficiency – qualities that can take you far in the workplace.

So, by the time you leave us, you’ll not only know the theory about developing programmes, navigating computing networks or managing multimedia technology – you’ll also understand how it all fits in the real world.

Whether you’re planning to continue your studies up to PhD level, or you’re anxious to get to work, our MSc in Computing can help you make it happen.
