Course content

This course is for non computing graduates who would like to study the area of computing, and would like to do so at a postgraduate level and undertake a dissertation of considerable depth at the end of the course.

The award includes the option of a placement in industry for a period of 12 months which may give focus to the dissertation. Alternatively the student's dissertation may research a relevant issue linked to their employment.

Note a separate preliminary course fee also applies for the computing skills module.
