Course Information

Experiment and innovate in computer science

  • Our Master of Computer Science has a major research component and projects are supervised by leading academics from world-class research groups. Their fields of expertise include computer vision, evolutionary computation, distributed systems, computer networks, high-performance computing, formal verification and systems modelling. 

What will you do

  • Build advanced technical knowledge and skills.

  • Learn to design and construct large software systems.

  • Propose and conduct an advanced research project.

  • Deliver a report and public presentation on your work.

Foundational programming skills and familiarity with at least one object-oriented programming language are required to enter the program. Our assignments are usually written in Java or C++.

Where could it take you

  • High-performing graduates may be able to proceed to further research study. You could take gaming environments to a whole new level. You could break ciphers or automate cloud security analyses. Perhaps you’ll develop interfaces for the visually impaired. A master degree will give you a competitive edge in all sorts of exciting computer science careers.
