Course content

This programme is intended for graduates with a previous degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, and with a solid foundation in programming. It allows students to broaden their knowledge of cutting edge areas of Computing through the choice of options from a range of advanced taught modules. It also provides the opportunity for students to deepen their knowledge of selected areas of Computing by individual project work.
The final four months of the programme is spent on a summer project. This could either be a software development oriented project, or a research oriented project, supervised by a member of staff who is active in that research area. Students undertaking research oriented projects (typically those interested in a career in research and development, or the pursuit of further studies, such as a PhD) will also complete one or two research mini-projects in the first part of the programme and undertake a Research Skills course.
