Course content

The MSc Computing will help you to develop your computing skills in the theory and practice of designing and developing computer systems. On this course you will build on your existing skills and develop new skills in order to prepare yourself for employment in the computing industry. This requires an understanding of programming, systems design and evaluation, project management, creative problem-solving and a range of technical skills. You will also have the opportunity to work on a substantial project of your own choice.

You’ll investigate the current trends and research activities in the computing community, and plan, undertake and evaluate a substantial computing project in which you will put into practice and develop your self-management, communication, critical evaluation and technical skills.





There is a mix of compulsory and optional modules. Compulsory modules include Critical Evaluation (20 credits), OO Software Development (20 credits), User-Centred System Design & Evaluation (20 credits), IT Project Management (20 credits), Master’s Project (60 credits). These core modules give you a solid basis in core computing skills and current research. The optional modules build on these and allow deeper understanding in specific topics such as web development, security and design.

To enhance your work experience you will have an opportunity to undertake an industrial placement as part your MSc. This will extend your study time by six to twelve months depending on the length of the placement. Alternatively there are opportunities to choose an industry-based project.

We expect our students to seek employment within a computing environment. This course will provide a framework within which you can take advantage of the opportunities of developing and improving technology to meet business and user needs.

There are opportunities to continue with your studies to MPhil or PhD.
