MSc Advanced Computer Science

Course Description


You will study four specialist, advanced units from a regularly updated range on offer. Different units are available from year to year to ensure flexible study patterns. We are a member of the Oracle Academy and highly rated in terms of research. Our supervision and facilities are also excellent.

Wide-ranging course units combine with a flexible approach which allows students to undertake practical project work while attending work placements.
