The MSc in Computer Communication Systems is a one-year taught programme run by the School of Computer Science. The course consists of two semesters of taught modules followed by an 11-week project leading to the submission of a 15,000-word dissertation in August.
- The MSc in Computer Communication Systems is a specialist course but retains some flexibility, allowing students to pursue other areas of computer science alongside the compulsory specialist modules.
- Students undertake a significant project, including a wide-ranging investigation typically featuring substantial software development or an advanced analytical framework.
- Students have 24-hour access to modern computing laboratories
Students on this course may switch to an MSc in Advanced Computer Science or in Information Technology after the first semester.
The taught portion of the MSc programme includes eight modules: four compulsory and four optional from a wide range available. Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical classes. Most modules are assessed through practical coursework exercises and examinations. Class sizes typically range from 10 to 50 students.
All students are assigned an advisor who meets with them at the start of the year to discuss module choices and is available to assist with any academic difficulties during the year. A designated member of staff provides close supervision for the MSc project and dissertation.
The modules in this programme have varying methods of delivery and assessment. For more details of each module, including weekly contact hours, teaching methods and assessment, please see the latest module catalogue which is for the 2017–2018 academic year; some elements may be subject to change for 2018 entry.
