Computing Science

This programme allows graduates from disciplines related to computing and information technology to develop their subject specific and personal skills through a programme of guided and structured research studies; 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 study must fit in with the overall flavour of the award, but within that general area students are able to specialise in a topic negotiated between themselves and the supervisor according to a learning contract; the programme begins with the research methods module which provides the research training required for the remainder of the course; students draw up a learning contract with their supervisor previous to the remaining modules.
