Advanced Computer Science MSc
Course Description:

This is a modular postgraduate course that can give credit exemption for prior education, training and work experience at an appropriate level in relevant areas. It allows you to build up your qualification by credit accumulation with interim exit points of postgraduate certificate and diploma on the way to an MSc. It offers maximum choice, requiring successful studies from a range of advanced modules in software engineering and development, web services, network management and Internet-based application development. It operates within a flexible scheme that makes it possible to incorporate work-based training into the programme. This is especially useful if your employer sponsors your studies and requires you to gain specific knowledge and skills.

Course Structure

The course is modular. You will need to complete all modules to progress onto the project. You may opt to accept a postgraduate diploma after successfully completing the required taught modules.

The course includes the following topics:

Modelling methods for software engineering and development:

Best Practice in Advanced Programming and Design

Professional Issues and Research Methods

Applications Development in Emerging Areas (e g mobile, Internet)

Project and Change Management

Issues Around Web and Network Service Management

An in-company project in a relevant area to computer science

Teaching and Assessment

Assessment methods vary for taught modules. We use a mixture of coursework and other testing methods. The project requires the submission of a dissertation and a presentation/demonstration.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from this course have usually found employment and promotion in the IT industry as: application developers, software engineers, network administrators, analysts/programmers and IT team leaders/project managers across a diverse range of industry sectors, large and small (eg financial, petrochemical, IT consulting, manufacturing, IT hardware/software development and services management).
