Advance your career in computer science with this Master’s in Computer Science. Choose from a range of options, including cyber security, forensics, business intelligence and software engineering. On this MSc Computer Science course, you will study, employ and reflect on the principles that underpin computer science. You can choose from a range of options, including machine learning, data science, cyber security and forensics, and wireless and mobile technologies. You will gain practical experience in the analysis and understanding of problems, systems and structures through case studies. As a result, you'll be equipped to deal with the intense demands of modern computer science and to respond with solutions that meet the needs of commerce, industry, or research. What you should know about this course
- You will gain the practical skills and theoretical knowledge for careers in the expanding field of Computer Science.
- You can specialise in one of two exciting pathways: Data Science or Network Engineering.
- University of Greenwich is an academic partner with The Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST).
- The University of Greenwich has a long-standing relationship with the British Computer Society (BCS), which accredits our computing degree programmes. As this programme was extensively updated in 2019, it has a current designation of Partial Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) and Partial Chartered Engineer (CEng) accreditation for the 2019 intake. The accreditation status is expected to be confirmed in spring 2022 after the first cohort of students graduate. Students will be kept updated on the status of this. In the very unlikely event that this does not progress as expected the university will support students with individual BCS membership applications at the point of graduation.
All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
On this course, students are assessed by coursework, examinations and a project. Some modules may also include practice assessments, presentations, demonstrations, and reports, which help you to monitor progress and make continual improvement.
