The UCL Computer Science Department is a world-class centre of excellence. Our work brings together novel technologies and methods in areas such as networks and communications; vision, imaging and virtual environments; intelligent systems; bioinformatics; human-computer interaction; information security; and software systems engineering. We aim to carry the excitement of our research into our teaching and inspire the next generation of creators and innovators.
Research for the real world: we take an experimental, scientific, approach to our subject, with an emphasis on the practical implementation of technology. Indeed, many technologies developed here have a continuing impact on all our lives, including the one that enables you to view this (or any other) website.
Far from viewing the business world warily from an academic ivory tower, we enjoy the challenge and opportunity of entrepreneurial partnerships. This approach can be seen in our MSc programmes which thrive on industial and commercial collaboration.
We are an open friendly department, open to ideas and open to people. We enjoy the UCL tradition of working across disciplinary boundaries. We ask questions and we challenge ideas. We believe in our subject and in its potential.
Computer Science at UCL offers you a number of exciting MSc possibilities. We teach seven advanced MSc programmes (for graduates of degree courses in a computing or engineering area) and two 'conversion' MSc programmes (for graduates of other disciplines).
