Course content

The MSc in Computing is perfect for students looking to develop upon their previous computing-based qualifications from courses such as Computing, Information Technology, Information Systems, Software Engineering or related disciplines. This course provides the opportunity and guidance necessary for students to build upon their existing knowledge and gain the skills necessary to succeed in both commercial computing and research.

You select six taught modules, three per semester, during the period September-April. You will make module selections with your advisor, and this will be partially dictated by your background and previous study.

Any module which has a significant overlap with your previous education will be disallowed, for students with a computing-related degree this will usually include most of the modules shown +.

The six taught modules will be chosen from topics such as the following:

  • Software Development+
  • Technology Innovation Management
  • Computer Vision
  • Computer Graphics
  • Computing the User Experience
  • Big Data Analysis
  • Database Systems
  • Secure Internet Programming
  • Software Engineering+
  • Agile Engineering
  • Computing Research Frontiers
  • Research Methods
  • Human Computer Interaction and Usability Engineering

Subject to examination performance, you then progress to the MSc project which runs from May to September.

Please note that some of the modules in the programme are shared with other masters programmes and some of the teaching and resources may be shared with our BSc programme. These joint classes offer a valuable opportunity to learn from, and discuss the material with, other groups of students with different backgrounds and perspectives.
