Months of entry
The MSc Computing programme at Hull focuses on the development of programming concepts and how they can model business processes and support other applications. The programme involves a rewarding combination of computer systems and software implementation, enabling you to master the latest computer technology.
You’ll make great advancements on your existing knowledge of computer science, learning about the technology behind a wide range of commercial and enterprise solutions. You will learn how to analyse problems and apply your knowledge to create software solutions. Along the way, you will gain experience with cutting-edge techniques and commercial perspectives. The course includes core development skills, alongside options encompassing large-scale development, visualization, security and distributed programming.
The course begins in September each year and lasts twelve months. There are two trimesters of taught modules, followed by an individual dissertation project during the third trimester. There is an option to take an extra trimester – either immediately before or after the dissertation – gaining industrial experience through a module based in SEED, our software development unit working with commercial clients and software. This is unique to Hull.
The Department of Computer Science creates an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft’s DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the department, you can download the software free of charge.
