The MSc Computing by Research has been developed to meet the needs of modern Computing, Software, Internet, Digital Media, Mobile and Telecommunications industries.
It is a flexible programme of demand-based research supported by an individually tailored system of learning material; hence it is designed for highly motivated full-time research students as well as graduates employed within industries or organisations.
You will work as part of a research group to complete a project of Master’s quality which may also deliver real benefit to the individual or to the supporting industry/organisation. This close alignment with your interest maximises your input to the learning programme while minimising the off-site commitment for industry.
The programme is flexibly structured so that you will be able to join in September or January.
In consultation with your academic supervisors you will identify taught modules for 60 credits (during two normal academic semesters, September to January and February to May), plus a major research project (for 120 credits) that is carried out with any of the research groups in the School. It is worth noting that you can select a maximum of 20 credits from the existing level 3 modules if deemed appropriate by the supervisor.
Examples of core study modules:
- Computer Architecture and Systems
- Formal Foundations
- Design for Human-Computer Interaction
- Software Development
- Statistical Data Analysis
Examples of optional study modules:
- Artificial Intelligence for Games
- Artificial Intelligence with Applications
- Database Systems
- Real-Time Systems
- Software Engineering
- Web Technologies

The course aims to provide you with a balance between the theory and practice of information systems, which will form the basis for your future career in the computing industry or related sectors such as education, finance, government, communications, transport, retail or manufacturing.
