Cloud computing offers scalable computing resources on demand, providing solutions and challenges for science and business. Amongst others, the opportunities include a low cost entry point for small companies, more economical use of computing resources and the capability of handling very large data sets. Challenges for practitioners include the design and use of suitable algorithms, the design and implementation of suitable architectures and understanding of risks and opportunities. This MSc will provide a sound understanding of designing, analysing and engineering of systems for handling big data in a distributed environment based on dynamically scalable architectures.

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 Cloud Computing 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.

Indivual 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.)


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.
