The MSc programme is designed to support students with varying levels of computing and programming practice experience. However, it is particularly suited to those with significant experience of writing code.
There is a focus on the transition to postgraduate study, with suitable content on professional skills and the importance of ethics for practising computer scientists.
In lectures you'll benefit from a range of techniques, from interpreting complex ideas through interactive discussions, to live programming or other problem-solving demonstrations.
Teaching and learning
We place a strong emphasis on practical laboratory sessions. These will significantly develop your core computer science skills, and enhance your employability through exposure to commercial projects.
As teamwork plays a key role in commercial software development and has great value as an employable skill, group work is used in a number of modules.
Practical coursework is the main form of assessment, and you will design, build and test software solutions to a variety of problems. This is complemented by written coursework. The largest assessment is the dissertation.
