Course Summary

This course is designed to match the growing need for graduates who are trained in one discipline and are also skilled in computer science. You’ll gain a strong foundation in programming, software development and contemporary themes in the industry.

The course gives you a broad overview of computer science, with opportunities to specialise in a number of different research areas. You'll study in a research-led department within a supportive postgraduate community. You’ll be using our bespoke computer laboratory and with our strong links to industry here and abroad you'll be exposed to the latest ideas and technology.

You’ll gain the knowledge and transferable skills for a career in a range of industries, or for further study at PhD or EngD level. With computer science forming an essential part of a number of key industries, our MSc graduates are highly sought after by employers.Graduates from the Department have gone on to work in areas such as IT consultancy, software development, banking and education.

Modules

Aims: (a) to develop an understanding of how the principles behind software development are much more important than the chosen programming language, and how specification, design choices and development methodology may have a major impact on the correctness and suitability of the final software solution; (b) to develop a systemic understanding of software development paradigms for complex software system building; (c) to develop skills in critically analysing problems for appropriate software solutions; (d) to develop the ability to contrast the various software development paradigms.
