Computer Science by Research


Course Description

(One year full-time, two years part-time)

Our MSc in Computer Science by Research involves an extended (one-year) individual research project carried out as part of one of our established research groups, combined with selected taught modules.

This programme offers you the chance to undertake an advanced masters programme through an extended research project. The programme is suitable for outstanding students who have an interest in advanced research-based study in one of our research specialisms: Computer Vision; Interaction, Media and Communication; Risk Information Management; Computer Science Theory.

The MSc by Research programme will give you solid theoretical and practical research competences in your chosen field of study and will enhance your employability. Successful completion of the programme may also provide a route to further study at doctoral level or for a research and development position in industry.
Programme outline

You will join one of our research groups, taking four selected taught modules and completing an extended research project. You will have the opportunity to develop further research and technical skills and to be able to demonstrate a level of independence that is greater than developed on a purely taught programme.
Assessment

All students are required to take written examinations in May/June. The MSc requires that a satisfactory research project should be completed. A mark of 50 per cent or more must be attained in all components.
