Computer Science is the study of theoretical foundations and
practical techniques for implementation in computer systems. Computer
Science has many sub-fields and this course provides an opportunity
for studying a range of these areas to an advanced level, which
include Algorithms and Data structures, Computational Science and
Artificial intelligence. Despite its short history, Computer Science
has made major contributions to science and society that have
transformed the way we live our lives. The areas studied in this
course draw on a strong research record within the department.
Opportunities for continuing studies to PhD level are available.
Students who complete this award will be educated to a professional
standard in a range of fields related to computer science, as well
being better acquainted with transferable skills such as problem
solving, communication, working with others, effective use of IT
facilities and information retrieval, as well as planning
self-learning and improving performance as the foundation for lifelong
learning. You will be taught by an internationally-recognised team
from the Faculty’s Game and Artificial Intelligence Paradigms
Possible Career Options
This MSc Computer Science award embraces fundamental theoretical and
