About Computing Science at Staffordshire University

The Masters by Research (MRes) is a part-time distance learning Masters Degree by research allowing graduates from disciplines related to Computing and I.T. to develop their subject specific and personal skills through a programme of guided and structured research studies. Delivered in the distance learning (DL) mode means that you will be able to access learning materials and interact with staff at the University remotely, using the latest technology and online resources. It is an intensive programme of research under the guidance of a research supervisor who is a specialist in the chosen area of research. The general area of your study must fit in with the overall 'flavour' of the award, but within that general area you will be able to specialise in a topic negotiated between you and your supervisor according to a 'Learning Contract'. The part-time route is very suitable for existing technologists, lecturers and teachers in academic institutions and may produce outcomes that are valuable to a current or potential employer. The distance learning mode of study is also suitable for learners whose situation allows them time to do online research but makes it more difficult to visit the University.
