MSc - Master of Science
Computer Architectures Communication Studies Informatics Architecture, Engineering, Construction Or Transport Software Network / Systems Management Software
The Institute for Computing System Architecture (ICSA) will provide you with academic resources and industry links that are among the best in the world.
We are home to the UK’s largest group of PhD researchers in the field, and host a Centre of Excellence in partnership with ARM, the world’s largest microprocessor intellectual property provider. We are also a member of the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation.
Our current research is focused on the areas of: compilers and architectures; parallel computing; wireless networking; processor-automated synthesis by iterative analysis.
While the scope for research is wide, each area is underpinned by our fundamental aims: to extend understanding of existing systems; to improve current systems; to develop new architecture and engineering methods.
Our students see their degrees as a launchpad for their careers, and many have established themselves as world-class researchers and developers. By joining their ranks, you will be able to make your mark on the next generation of technological innovations. Academic and business employers actively recruit ICSA graduates, many of whom are now designing the next generation of products for major software developers, or taking the lead in other entrepreneurial ventures.
Training and support
You’ll be supported in your research by award-winning academic staff – including four Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering. They and other research colleagues have contributed to what is an enviable publications portfolio, featuring some of the most prestigious publications in the field.
The School of Informatics holds a Silver Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to advance the representation of women in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The School is deploying a range of strategies to help female staff and students of all stages in their careers and we seek regular feedback from our research community on our performance.
