This MSc can lead to a career such as a project manager, software engineer or developer of large-scale systems.

All our one year full time Computer Science Masters programmes are available with an optional one year industry placement. The ‘with placement’ programmes give you additional industrial experience by applying the skills you have learned throughout your studies.
They offer you the opportunity to work for one year in a highly professional and stimulating environment. You will be a full time employee in a company earning a salary and will learn new skills that can’t be taught at University. During the placement, you will be able to gain further insight into industrial practice that you can take forward into your individual project.
