Notes about fees for this course
Fees for this course have yet to be confirmed and will be updated shortly
This course is aimed at Computing graduates who wish to specialise further in Computer Science improving their knowledge, understanding, skills and capabilities. Our postgraduate courses are concerned with vocational education, and it is anticipated that the majority of MSc graduates will either enter employment (or continue) as IT/Computing professionals, or progress to doctoral work with a probable view to pursuing academic or research careers.
You will study four specialist, advanced units including High Performance Computing and Big Data and Advanced Computer Networks and Operating Systems. A wide-range of optional units allow you to tailor your course to specialise in areas of your choice. A third of your MSc will consist of a solo project with individual supervision. This is supported by a series of seminars/workshops, but the emphasis is on student-centred learning and recognises expectations about student autonomy, typical of postgraduate level and also is part of the strategy to enhance your employability through the development of confidence, self-awareness and self-sufficiency.
