Course content


We've designed this course for graduates who may not have a background in computing but are looking to launch their careers in this fast-paced, in-demand field.   

As computing continues to evolve at a remarkable pace, the expertise to harness the latest technology becomes more vital every day for organisations in every sector. Our MSc Computer Science course provides that expertise, helping you develop the specialist skills for a career in computing.    

On this computer science masters you’ll explore programming, advanced computer networks, cloud development and information systems. You will learn concepts, techniques and technologies to equip you for the practical side of investigating real-world problems and creating a system or solution to match. Through this, you’ll gain a set of skills made for the modern professional world of computing.  

You’ll also have the flexibility to set the direction for your postgraduate studies with a masters project of your own design. While you’ll have the one-to-one support of your supervisor, it’s a solo project – as much about developing computing skills as it is about building confidence and autonomy, vital skills for the workplace.  

By the time you’re finished, you’ll be equipped with both a theoretical understanding and practical abilities in computer science – ready to apply your knowledge to real-world situations. 

Career Prospects

The advanced skills and understanding you’ll develop on our MSc course can open doors to roles across a range of industries, in both the public and private sectors. Study with us and you’ll follow in the footsteps of graduates who have gone on to become software developers, programmers, app developers, web developers and software testers, working with the likes of Barclays, Autotrader, AZoNetwork and Realtime Despatch.
