University of York
The programme is intended for students who already have a Computing or related degree. Typically, you will have achieved at least an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or international equivalent), and you will have already studied databases, programming and relevant mathematics. We are willing to consider applications from those who do not fit this profile. We will, for example, consider applicants who do not have an appropriate qualification but have appropriate industrial experience. We are willing to consider applications from students with lower qualifications, particularly when the student has high marks in relevant modules and/or appropriate industrial experience. Selectors for the course are looking for 5 essential criteria to be satisfied: Good knowledge of programming in any programming language; basic knowledge of databases including basic SQL programming; basic knowledge of logic, set theory, relations, and function; basic knowledge of concurrent process management; basic knowledge of computer organisation and architecture. If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you are applying to.
Modules include: high performance computing; user centred design; java programming concepts; cloud computing (optional); concurrent and real time programming (optional); formal specification (optional); software engineering; software measurement and testing (optional); advanced web design (optional); mobile device application development (optional); static analysis and verification (optional); group project - computing and it; final project - computing.
Practical exercises, reports and other forms of open assessment are typically issued towards the end of the teaching sessions of an optional module. Work for these assessments must be submitted by fixed deadlines well after the conclusion of the taught sessions.
