Course content

Rapid developments in technology have resulted in a wealth of opportunity across all sectors and industries for people who are qualified in multiple areas of computing.

Our MSc Computing Degree is a conversion programme that requires no previous academic experience in the field of computing, making it the ideal course if you want to change career or develop a new set of skills to complement your existing experience and move a wider range of exciting roles in computing and IT.

The course focuses on core computing skills such as software development, databases and cyber security, helping you to become a competent and fluent computing professional. You will learn key programming skills across languages and platforms, as well as how to provide data solutions and secure systems.

You will learn about developing software and working with data and build your fluency in Python.

You will complete your degree with a project that will explore a topic of your choice, producing a product and a supporting report. The project will fit one of the following four types; student defined, research based, industry defined or social enterprise. You will be able to work with academic staff across the University, not just within Computing.

There are no timetabled lectures in this degree programme, but instead short videos of content. Your teaching time will take the form of labs, workshops and tutorials, providing you with a more tailored experience with plenty of face-to-face contact time. Industry standard IT resources are hosted in the cloud to allow you to work on projects and assignments from anywhere.
