The MSc in Advanced Computer Science combines cutting edge techniques with consultancy and experience of working on real company projects to ensure you graduate with the skills that employers demand for a career in the computing and IT sectors across the globe.

About the course

The MSc in Advanced Computer Science gives the in-depth knowledge and cutting edge skills required for careers where advanced computer systems are used to solve difficult business goals, control complex processes and equipment, and undertake deep and detailed analysis, management, and presentation of data.

You will gain advanced knowledge of the principles and concepts of Internet technologies, software development, and intelligent systems. Alongside this you will develop the practical skills that are necessary for the design, build, deployment and evaluation of distributed information systems and complex, Internet-enabled business applications.

The course covers a wide range of practical skills and theory, from a fast-track programming and systems design course through to advanced data analysis and the use of private cloud hardware. During the course you will learn many techniques, including manipulating large amounts of data, designing and building large applications, leveraging and provisioning cloud services and developing autonomous systems.

The course also teaches you the skills needed to become a technology consultant through the dedicated modules where you are taught and assessed through applying your learning to real-world problems.

In the first part of the programme you will study 8 taught modules over two semesters. In the second part you will have the choice to undertake a formal academic project supervised by academic staff in the School or to take an industry placement. In both options you will apply the skills you have learned during the taught modules. Example companies where students have taken an industry placement include Synectics Solutions, Collective Crunch and Greenhous.
