Course content

This course provides a year of intensive training in computer science, and is suitable for graduates of disciplines other than computing who are preparing for a career in the computer industry.

Applicants who want to add computing qualifications or to retrain as computing or IT professionals are the natural target for this programme, and the course is also a suitable preparation for PhD studies.

This MSc provides opportunities for postgraduate students to develop and demonstrate knowledge, understanding, and practical skills in basic and specialised topics in computing, as well as the qualities and skills needed for group co-operation and for literature search, technical presentation and report writing. You also have the chance to join in development of a large software project.
