Computing and Mathematical Sciences, MSc by Research
Taught courses are chosen from the School’s broad portfolio and should be appropriate to the student's project area. They must include a course on research methodology as the basis for their project.
The project itself is one of the student's free choices, within the constraints imposed by their education, training, experience and research supervisor. It is designed to be very practical, to be given more time than is traditionally allowed and to emphasise the work-based aspects of the subject matter. The School of Computing & Mathematical Sciences also has MPhil/PhD opportunities.
This MSc provides the student with significant skills in the undertaking of a substantial independent piece of research and will enable successful graduates to extend their research skills at a higher level in industry or academia
