Course content

This intensive MSc conversion programme offer practical experience in computer science. Students can enhance employability by exploiting the potential of computing and information systems, and combine specialist technical skills with your current knowledge and experience.

During the course students gain a solid background in computer information systems, beginning with a double module on the topic and learn about databases, computer programming, security and authentication and interactive systems design. Students can then build on this knowledge with modules covering mobile services and cloud computing, as well as Bayesian decision and risk analysis.

Students can choose to specialise in systems or technology strategy, and to consolidate studies through a final major project, which can be completed with an industrial partner.

The School has collaborations, partnerships, industrial placement schemes and public engagement programmes with organisations, including Vodafone, Google, IBM, BT, NASA, BBC and Microsoft.
