Visual Computing MRes


Course Description

Take advantage of one of our 100 Master’s Scholarships or College of Science Postgraduate Scholarships to study Visual Computing at Swansea University, the Times Good University Guide’s Welsh University of the Year 2017. Postgraduate loans are also available to English and Welsh domiciled students. For more information on fees and funding please visit our website.

The MRes Visual Computing is an ideal preparation for following a career of research or specialism within the area of study. In particular the MRes in Visual Computing seeks to prepare you for further research in the areas of Computer Graphics, Computer Vision, Medical Imaging, and Scientific Visualisation.

We seek strongly motivated students who are able to carry out substantial individual study. Such students are likely to want to control their own time, carry out curiosity driven research to an advanced level, and follow self-study material in advanced topics.

You will decide upon your topic of research in discussion with your supervisor in an exciting and recent area of Visual Computing. In collaboration with your supervisor you will evaluate current research and carry your own research programme based on the contribution you will make. The research programme is supported by taught courses covering useful literature and skills.

Course Content

Research Component

The main part of the MRes in Visual Computing is a substantial and challenging project involving cutting edge research. The project is an exciting opportunity for you to carry out research in the area of Visual Computing. You will produce an abstract of your work, a scientific paper, carry out a presentation and produce your final dissertation.

Taught Component

In addition to the research project, you can choose from a range of modules that provide skills and development training in different areas.

Modules available currently include:

Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (compulsory)
Data Visualisation (compulsory)
Graphics Processor Programming (compulsory)
Research Methodology (compulsory)
Visual Computing Project Development (compulsory)
Distributed Object-Oriented Programming
Interaction Technologies: Information Retrieval
High Performance Computing in C/C++
Interaction Technologies: Hardware and Devices

Facilities

The Department of Computer Science is well equipped for teaching, and is continually upgrading its laboratories to ensure equipment is up-to-date – equipment is never more than three years old, and rarely more than two. Currently, our Computer Science students use three fully networked laboratories: one, running Windows; another running Linux; and a project laboratory, containing specialised equipment. These laboratories support a wide range of software, including the programming languages Java, C# and the .net framework, C, C++, Haskell and Prolog among many; integrated programme development environments such as Visual Studio and Netbeans; the widely-used Microsoft Office package; web access tools; and many special purpose software tools including graphical rendering and image manipulation tools; expert system production tools; concurrent system modelling tools; World Wide Web authoring tools; and databases.

As part of the expansion of the Department of Computer Science, we are building the Computational Foundry on our Bay Campus for computer science and mathematical science.

Careers

All Computer Science courses will provide you the transferable skills and knowledge to help you take advantage of the excellent employment and career development prospects in an ever growing and changing computing and ICT industry.

94% of our Postgraduate Taught Graduates of Computer Science were in professional level work or study [DLHE 14/15]

Research

The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 show that we lead Wales in the field of Computer Science and are in the UK Top 20.

We are ranked 11th in the UK for percentage of world-leading research, and 1st in Wales for research excellence. 40% of our submitted research assessed as world-leading quality (4*).
