The exciting and dynamic world of computer science is at the heart of many aspects of modern life, and the MSci Computer Science will give you both the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to become a part of that world. This four-year course will give you a true breadth of experience in Computer Science, providing extensive coverage of the subject beyond a traditional three year BSc.
On this course you will develop transferable technical, analytical and professional skills, supported by a broad awareness of current technology trends. The course covers a mixture of core techniques and concepts, advanced programming languages and paradigms, and evolving, technology-based subject matter. You will gain exposure to topics that are driving key technological developments and trends in Computer Science.
During the final two years of the course you will choose to study a selection of optional, research-led modules that will provide you with exposure to a wide set of skills and knowledge across the breadth of Computer Science research in the school. These modules include a number structured around advanced topics in the School's three core research areas: • Complex Systems • Visual Computing • Data and Knowledge Engineering
Graduates are able to objectively analyse problems and develop appropriate computational solutions. Your detailed understanding of technology and advanced problem-solving skills will make you suitable for a range of professional careers and sought-after by employers.
The year of study at a university abroad will give you the opportunity to broaden your experience and learning, and strengthen your transferable skills.
Distinctive Features of the Programme
• The course does not require any prior knowledge or experience of computer science. You will begin your studies with a month-long module which establishes core concepts and competencies and supports the transition to studying at a university. • Opportunity to develop your interest in specialist areas of computer science through project work and module options as you progress. • This is an integrated Master’s degree in Computer Science designed for students who wish to differentiate themselves from BSc Computer Science through an advanced mastery of the discipline. • During the final two years you will experience modules from across a wide range of fields and topics in Computer Science, providing you with a breadth of skills and knowledge as well as experience of team-working at a high level. • Includes a year of study at an approved university abroad in year three of the programme.
