January 2023 entry for this programme is not running. We expect the January entry option to be available in January 2024.
The MSc in Computer Science is a conversion course, suitable if you have limited knowledge of the subject. It offers a pathway towards deeper learning. However, applicants must have experience of Programming - this will be assessed at the application stage. This applies to the January start date only.
Our £32.5m Computational Foundry lies at the heart of this degree. Sophisticated teaching and research equipment include a Vision and Biometric Lab, a Maker Lab, a Theory Lab, a Cyber Security/Networking Lab, a User Lab and Visualisation Suite.
Through a combination of practical and theory-based learning, you will develop a firm understanding of subjects from software concepts and software engineering principles to big data, web application development, and network security.
This understanding, together with a substantial project module, puts you in a strong position when it comes to more advanced study or employment.
