Course content

The MSc in Computer Science is a conversion course, suitable if you have a limited knowledge of the subject. It offers a pathway towards deeper learning.

Our brand new £32.5m Computational Foundry lies at the heart of this degree. Sophisticated teaching and research equipment include a Vision and Biometric Lab, a Maker Lab, a TechHealth Lab, a Theory Lab, a Cyber Security/Networking Lab, a User Lab and Visualisation Suite.

Through a combination of practical and theory-based learning you will develop a firm understanding of subjects from software concepts and software engineering principles to big data, web application development and graphics processor programming.

This understanding, together with a substantial project module, puts you in a strong position when it comes to more advanced study or employment.
