MSc Computing Science (Conversion Course)

Course Description

The MSc Computing Science is designed for graduates of non-computing subjects to broaden their knowledge in computer technologies and pursue new career prospects.


The training in this course not only teaches essential computing technical knowledge, but you are encouraged to develop professional skills in communication, critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving, independent and team work and project management. Students study a diverse range of modules including Software Development Methodologies with UML (Unified Modelling Language) and Internet and Multimedia Technology. All modules are integrated in a web-based framework where students are grouped in teams to design and implement a substantial web-based application. Students also take a few optional modules, covering such areas as Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence and Image Processing.


The course is delivered through lectures, seminars, directed studies and laboratory exercises, involving both individual and team work. The assessments are carried out by coursework and written examinations. Initially students undertake an MSc Dissertation project on a topic linked to the School of Computing Science's main research area, often in collaboration with an outside body. Some project work with companies could involve paid placement.


The School of Computing Science at UEA maintains close ties with industry professionals, with many of the student assignments directly seeking solutions to real world problems. The School utilises its internationally recognised research commercially, and graduates of this course often use taught technical and entrepreneurial skills to fulfil influential roles within the local and international community.


The course encourages its students to be professionally competitive and flexible in a challenging and changing employment environment. Graduates of the MSc Computing Science can seek employment in a wider range of careers within the industry, business, public sector, education and research institutions. They can work in diverse roles such as software developers, systems analysts, data analysts and IT managers, or work as independent consultants or academic/commercial researchers.
