Computer science is a wide field, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations, to cutting-edge development in computer graphics and intelligent systems.

Computer scientists find effective ways to solve computing problems. They may take on challenging programming jobs or create new ways to use computers. Now, computer science researchers are working with scientists from other fields for everything from analysing economic trends to deciphering the secrets of our DNA.

This four-year Master of Computing course is the highest award for undergraduate study in computing and is designed for more able students. It allows you to further distinguish yourself with an advanced set of professional and technical skills. It enables you to create industrial-strength software applications, using the latest commercial practices. It’s also accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and gives full exemption from their examination requirements.

Learning and teaching methods
You will have around 16 hours of teaching in lectures, tutorials and practical sessions every week. You also need to spend four hours per week, per module on your coursework, general reading and other preparation. We strongly recommend you spend up to a year working in industry as part of your studies, either in the UK or abroad. This means you can gain new skills, boost your career prospects and your grades, plus it could lead to job opportunities with your placement employer.

Computers are fundamental to many different industries, so you can apply your skills to many fields. Computer programmers and engineers mainly work for large computer companies. Microsoft, IBM, Intel and Hewlett-Packard all rely on an army of computer scientists to produce and maintain their technology. Even within these companies, you can work in a broad variety of areas and in a number of jobs. Product development entails designing, building and testing the latest products, so skills in software programming and design are vital.
