Presentación

The field of algorithms is today an extremely important enabling technology. Web search engines, keyword-based advertising, routing in the Internet, peer-to-peer networks, genome analysis, cryptography and image analysis are just a few examples of applications that depend critically on suitable choices of algorithms and data structures.

The focus of this MSc is on the design, analysis and engineering of algorithms, covering their use for modelling real-world problems. Our core modules touch upon some recent and important areas of algorithmic applications, including bioinformatics, large computer networks, game theory and discrete event systems, providing you with the tools needed to model large and complex systems as algorithmic processess, while training in C++ and advanced algorithm design will give you the skills to write the necessary software. In your project you have the freedom to explore the full range of algorithmic application areas.

Optional Industry Placement

All of our Computer Science MSc degrees are available with an optional (usually paid) industry placement. If you take a ´with Industry´ degree, your qualification will be ´MSc in Advanced Computational Methods with Industry´

These ´with industry´ degrees have been designed to stimulate your creativity and capacity to innovate, and ensure that you acquire key transferable skills.

Individual Project

Your course will conclude with an individual project (after your industry placement, if you have taken one). Using the experience gained during your course/placement, you will choose a challenging problem to work on and explore it by privately studying under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. (Students studying for a PGDip don´t complete a project.)

Duration

The regular degree takes 12 months if you start in October, or 16 months if you start in January. The ´With Industry´ degree takes 21 months if you start in October, or 24 months if you start in January.

NB. If you start your course in January, you will take Semester 2 before Semester 1.

Salidas profesionales

All our postgraduate Computer Science degrees are available ´with industry´: stimulating your creativity and capacity to innovate, and ensuring that you acquire key transferable skills. These courses will allow you to develop into a highly skilled professional, well versed in advanced methods and tools. Colleagues from industry participate directly in the delivery of some of the modules, including hands-on tutorials that allow you to use some of the tools and methodologies that are shaping the software development landscape.

We have an open approach to collaboration with industry. We undertake joint projects, provide consultancy services, and organise events to connect you with potential employers. We also run an Industrial Advisory Board: its members are computer scientists who hold successful careers in industry and who help us ensure that your training is industrially relevant.
