Computer Scientists are in more demand today than ever before due to the increasing reliance on Computer Systems and Software, this is further compounded with the continual introduction of cutting edge and new technologies. Therefore, an advanced master degree in Computer Science will make you highly employable, having developed practical skills in computing systems and software development. You will be ideally placed to gain employment in a wide range of high-demand jobs including software engineering, systems development and other related fields. This course aims to equip postgraduate students with core skills in: Data Analytics, Numerical Methods, Theoretical Computer Science, Programming and Applied Computer Science. In addition, students will also undertake a selection of courses such as: Data Communications, Cyber Security, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, High Performance Computing, Advances in Computer Science, Visualisation, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
Advanced Computer Science covers a wide range of specific topics such as: Data Analytics, Theoretical Computer Science, Numerical Methods, Applied Computer Science, Programming, Data Communications and Cyber Security Visualisation.
The course is delivered by a small, enthusiastic team which prides itself not only on high teaching quality, which has been independently recognised, but also a vibrant research community; in the most recent Research Excellent Framework Exercise, 100% of the Department’s research was deemed to be internationally excellent or recognised. Assessment is through a mixture of coursework and examination. The ethos within the Department is to foster enthusiasm for Computer Science and so assessment is largely through project work, giving you the opportunity to explore the subject area and focus on those specific topics that capture your interest. The project entails research and innovation as well as practical industrial applications of the ideas developed during the programme of study.
Normally a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours Degree in Computer Science, Computing, Science, or engineering-based discipline. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2:1 Honours Degree (or equivalent) may be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.
