Through this programme you will get a first hand understanding of what computational systems can achieve and the vital problem solving role of software. You will learn, practice and demonstrate the professional skills required by all software engineers, individually or as a part of a team, when developing a software solution.
Through a gentle introduction and intensive support, you will be introduced to programming skills using important languages such as Java and Python. Emphasis is placed on handling data and you will develop essential skills in SQL (Structured Query Language) for advanced database functionality using industry standard products such as Oracle™.
A choice of taught optional modules allows you to further develop skills in areas of your choice.
Full-time students may choose to apply for a paid 7-10 month professional work placement to be undertaken on completion of Spring semester and before completing the MSc programme with a 60-credit dissertation. Whilst students are responsible for finding their own placements, the School works alongside professional placement consultants to give advice on applying for placements, to keep you informed of a variety of opportunities, and to ensure that you receive constant support and guidance throughout the whole process.
