This intensive programme in computing provides a good grounding for working in the information technology industry. As well as gaining a broad knowledge of computing, you will acquire programming skills and have the opportunity to investigate certain areas of current research more deeply. The degree is designed for graduates who are new to computer science.
MSc: Good degree, or equivalent, in a subject other than computer science, together with some aptitude for programming. Applicants without a degree-level qualification but with significant computing experience may also be considered.
