Software Systems (MSc)


Course Description

The MSc in Software Systems provides an ideal foundation for those who wish to pursue a career as a software engineer or do research in software systems engineering.

The programme covers all aspects of software engineering necessary to enable students to learn about designing and developing complex software systems. A significant part of the programme consists of a large research project or professional placement.

Why study Computer Science with us?

- The majority of our Masters graduates move directly into computer science careers in software development or consultancy.
- The department was ranked 4th in the UK in the Research Assessment Exercise.
- We have a fully-supported professional placement programme.

What will I learn?

You will learn how the issues can be managed by a software team and how a complete system can be designed and developed to meet a specification. Relevant modern software applications and digital media are also covered in this programme.

As well as gaining exposure to the latest ideas in this area and developing the confidence that you can manage yourself -- and others -- in the execution of a large and complex project, you will be able to build a career path that leads equally well into industry and/or into academia.

- Web Usability Partnership
- Imagination Technologies
- Nomura
- Goldman Sachs
- OC Robotics
- Nokia
- PayPal

About the department

The new Department of Computer Science began life in August 2001, emerging from the Computing Group of the Department of Mathematical Sciences. It is a research-led department with a strong record in interdisciplinary research and postgraduate teaching.

MSc
Our Masters programmes are designed to give you a wide range of knowledge so that you can build a career in the fast-moving industry of computing. The programmes are taught by recognised experts in each field, offering you, the student, a cutting-edge experience and a qualification which is both academic and commercially relevant. You will be exposed to the latest science and technology in your chosen specialist area, to complement previously-gained knowledge and skills from your undergraduate degree.

MPhil/PhD
The Department supports a strategic range of computer science research at PhD level and beyond. Our main research interests include Human Computer Interaction, Visual Computing, Mathematical Foundations, and Intelligent Systems. Research is pursued both in fundamental theoretical development and a range of application areas.

EngD in Digital Media
The Engineering Doctorate (EngD) in Digital Media is an alternative to the traditional PhD for students who want a career in industry. A four-year programme combines PhD-level research projects with taught courses, and students spend about 75% of their time working directly with a company.

Facilities and equipment
LAN and WAN, state-of-the-art HCI laboratory, audio laboratory.

International and industrial links
The Department has active collaborations with academics in leading universities in Europe, Australasia, the USA and Japan. Strong links with industry, e.g. HP labs, Airbus, Qinetiq, Westland, Toshiba and Vodafone.

Careers information
High employment records for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Good links with employers
