Degree Overview

In addition to eight taught modules, there is a substantial practical project. As an alternative to the award of MSc Advanced Computing, you may choose modules and a project with a particular specialisation leading to the award of MSc Data Analytics.

Once you successfully complete this MSc you will have obtained knowledge and understanding of technologies of growing importance in the IT industry and their relationship to current and emerging IT industry practice.

MRes Advanced Computing: The MRes has been designed to meet the needs of both students wishing to advance their knowledge of computing or information systems before embarking on a research and development career in IT or on an MPhil/PhD degree, and students already working in the IT sector.

This MRes builds on your advanced understanding of computing and information systems. It offers you a supervised research project in one of the following areas of advanced study:

  • algorithms, verification and software
  • experimental data science
  • knowledge representation and data management
  • machine learning
  • large-scale resource management.

As these areas correspond to particular expertise among our academic staff, you will also have the opportunity to undertake your research within our own ongoing research projects if you wish. As well as following three taught modules in the above areas, you will also take a Research Methods module.

MSc and MRes: On successful completion of the MSc or MRes Advanced Computing you will have gained in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge which you will be able to use in:

  • analysis of problems
  • evaluation of technology options
  • deployment of appropriate solutions
  • research into, and development of, new technologies
