About Advanced Computational Methods at Postgraduate Science at Leicester

The field of algorithms is today an extremely important enabling technology. Web search engines, keyword-based advertising, routing in the Internet, peer-to-peer networks, genome analysis, cryptography and image analysis are just a few examples of applications that depend critically on suitable choices of algorithms and data structures.

The focus of this MSc is on the design, analysis and engineering of algorithms, covering their use for modelling real-world problems. Our core modules touch upon some recent and important areas of algorithmic applications, including bioinformatics, large computer networks, game theory and discrete event systems, providing you with the tools needed to model large and complex systems as algorithmic processes, while training in C++ and advanced algorithm design will give you the skills to write the necessary software. In your project you have the freedom to explore the full range of algorithmic application areas.
