Overview

The MEng programme aims to develop graduates who will be competent in the fundamentals of Computer Science and will have specialised in a number of current areas of research interest. You will graduate with wider transferable skills and be able to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of employers within the IT industry.

Building on our Computer Science BSc programme, you will develop a good ‘all-round’ understanding of the academic discipline of Computer Science and as the programme progresses you will be able to specialise in particular areas. In Year Four you will develop a much deeper and systematic specialisation in a number of selected topics at the forefront of current research. You will also gain a comprehensive understanding of how research is used to further knowledge in Computer Science and how that knowledge may be applied.

The first two years cover a range of compulsory modules including Programming in Java, Computer Systems, Databases, Software Engineering, Algorithmic Foundations, Complexity of Algorithms, and Decision, Computation and Language. You then choose from a selection of modules representing the cutting-edge of Computer Science today. These cover topics such as Biocomputation, Introduction to Computational Game Theory and Complex Social Networks, amongst others. This degree includes a second year group software project and an individual project to be carried out during the third year. In the fourth year, four research-based taught modules are complemented by a first semester group project and a further individual project carried out in the final semester.

Career opportunities

Internationally, computer scientists are in the highest-earning category of graduates. Many go straight into well-paid careers such as; computer programmer; software developer; systems analyst; software engineer; technical consultant and web designer. Some reach senior management and directorial positions, as in the case of a former student who became game development manager for one of the largest games producers in the UK.
