Course content

This MSc in Computer Science programme is directed at graduates without a first degree in Computer Science who wish to supplement the knowledge acquired in their undergraduate study with a substantial element of computer science.

The programme leads to a wide range of careers in the IT industry; in many cases students seek employment at the interface of the IT domain and the subject matter of their first degree.

The programme is organised as two taught semesters followed by an individual project undertaken over the summer. During each semester MSc students study a number of modules adding up to 60 credits per semester (120 in total). This will be followed by a dissertation, also 60 credits, making an overall total of 180 credits.
