The MSc Computer Science will provide you with the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and skills in a range of advanced topics in computer science. A central theme of the programme is the development of mobile and distributed systems for innovative applications.

The programme is designed for graduates in computer science or related areas, who wish to broaden and deepen their knowledge and learn about developments at the forefront of the subject. It provides a robust grounding in key principles and tools, together with a strong focus on industrial applications, and will provide a foundation for either further research or a career applying leading edge technology in industry.

In addition to mobile and distributed systems, the programme explores advanced issues in software development, web science and data mining. A key aspect of the programme philosophy is that the learning experience integrates use of major commercial software - Cisco (networks and distributed systems), SAS (data mining and business intelligence) - with investigation of the wider theoretical context. You will also learn about the skills needed to become a successful entrepreneur in the IT sector.
