Course content

Advanced software technology is critical to the functioning of modern society. Computing systems can be found in science and engineering, medicine design and manufacturing, commerce and public service. Software technology dictates how these systems operate and how they are used.

The MSc Advanced Software Technology is suitable you if you are a Computer Science or Software Engineering graduate or if you have relevant experience from a first degree. It may also be suitable if you have substantial experience of working in a related environment and wish to develop your knowledge.

You will choose from a diverse range of computer science subjects. These include artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies and operation systems, big data, web application development and graphics processor programming.
