Applicants normally hold a recognised 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject.

If an applicant does not meet standard entry requirements, it is possible to undertake a single module and upon successful completion of this module progress to the full MSc qualification.
Core modules include: databases; dissertation; internet programming; internet security; modern computer architecture; visual object software. Optional modules: computer networks; distributed systems; formal methods for software construction; immersive technologies; intelligent systems; java programming; media techniques; mobile device software development; modelling for enterprise; software engineering; specification analysis and design.
Assessment is by coursework, oral presentations, group work, practical reports, critical reviews and all students undertake a substantial independent research dissertation. Theoretical lectures and seminars are reinforced by practical examples and case studies and using state of the art computer simulation tools and laboratory facilities.
