The MSc Computing provides students with an opportunity to develop generic computing skills that can be applied in all walks of life as well as the skills and understanding needed to develop software systems. Students will develop transferable skills in evaluation of ideas and concepts, effective communication, synthesis of ideas and become reflective practitioners. The aims of the course are to provide an opportunity for the students to plan, undertake and evaluate a substantial computing Project; to develop the students’ critical evaluation, communication and self-management skills to a level appropriate for post-graduate students and to encourage and enable the students to become reflective and research-aware practitioners.
This course, building on the intellectual skills of a computing or technology-related degree, enhances students’ employment prospects in the IT field, and further develops the skills they obtained in their undergraduate degree. The skills acquired can lead to a range of careers in computing specialisations that are in high demand, even outside the technology sector.
