A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in computer science. Other Computing based degrees may be considered on a case by case basis.
We require all applicants to have studied a breadth of relevant modules including significant programming, systems development, data structures and algorithms, with strong marks across all these modules.
Relevant work experience will also be considered.
Months of entry
Explore advanced topics in computer science with this wide-ranging Masters degree, which will equip you with the understanding and practical skills to succeed in a variety of careers.
Rooted in the established research strengths of the School of Computing, the programme will introduce topics like systems programming and algorithms before allowing you to specialise through your choice of modules.
You could look at emerging approaches to human interaction with computational systems, novel architectures such as clouds, or the rigorous engineering needed to develop cutting-edge applications such as large-scale data mining and social networks.
Building on your existing knowledge of computer science, you’ll develop the theoretical and practical skills required to design and implement larger, more complex systems using state-of-the-art technologies. You’ll even have the chance to work as an integral member of one of our research groups when you develop your main project.
You’ll benefit from world-class facilities to support your learning, including:
a state-of the art cloud computing lab with a 10-node cluster
a large High Performance Computing (HPC) resource consisting of several clusters which are used for all forms of predictive modelling, data analysis and simulation
a visualisation lab including a Powerwall, benchtop display with tracking system, WorldViz PPT optical tracking system and Intersense InertiaCube orientation tracker
Ascension Flock of Birds tracking systems, three DOF and 6DOF Phantom force feedback devices
Twin Immersion Corp CyberGloves
rendering cluster and labs containing both Microsoft and Linux platforms, among others.
It’s an exciting environment in which to gain a range of skills and experience cutting-edge technology.
