Course content

This programme is designed to develop your understanding of the research process. It is for graduates from a computer-related discipline who wish to investigate research as a possible career, or who wish to extend their knowledge of one particular facet of computing. This programme provides you with an MSc that allows you to focus on your desired specialism, whilst our international staff provide all necessary support.

This programme will equip you with comprehensive knowledge and understanding of:
• advanced theoretical fundamentals of current trends in computer science
• state-of-the-art key research issues in specialised areas of computer science
• techniques for project management and the design, implementation and evaluation of IT solutions

Students on this programme will undertake four taught modules corresponding to a third of the degree, typically in the first semester followed by a research project in the next two semesters for a total duration of 18 months. The precise content of the research project will be discussed and decided with the project supervisor and subject to approval, in the same way as for applications for PhD studies. Students will be qualified for positions that require an advanced understanding of computing in the chosen area, particularly where independence of thought and analytical skills are required. The department is equipped with specialist lab facilities for operating systems, networking, mobile computing and multimedia technology that will support the learning, teaching and research. The department is committed in providing world-class education and training. All the academic staff have extensive international experience in teaching, research and collaboration with industry.
