This MSc is an intensive one-year generalist programme for highly-motivated graduates with a good honours degree, but with little prior experience of computer science. You will develop theoretical and practical skills in computing and information systems development. The core modules introduce aspects of computing, including a double module in object-oriented programming (using Java) and a double module in information systems.
These core modules are supplemented by optional specialist modules covering a broad range of subjects relevant to the software industry, such as Internet Computing, Business Information Systems and Decision and Risk. Your project work will typically involve the design and implementation of a significant piece of software within your chosen specialism. Projects undertaken for external organisations are encouraged.
