Course Description


The MSc in Computing allows a computing graduate or a graduate of a closely related discipline to further advance their professional computing skills at a postgraduate level by study of a portfolio of bespoke specialist computing topics. As a leading University we are committed to the advancement of computing. Research in the Faculty includes Pervasive Computing, Distributed Computing and Applications; Innovative Applications for Interactive Worlds Serious Games and Virtual Worlds.

Our research activities are strengthened by collaborations both within the University and externally with prestigious institutions such as the Serious Games Institute. These links provide a close interface between high-level applied academic research and leading edge technology companies in the fields associated with computing.

The remainder of the programme is bespoke, made up of topics from areas such as:
