Masters by Research in Computing Science (Part time) - Máster en Investigación en Informática
The MSc Computing will help you to develop your computing skills in the theory and practice of designing and developing computer systems. On this course you will build on your existing skills and develop new skills in order to prepare yourself for employment in the computing industry. This requires an understanding of programming, systems design and evaluation, project management, creative problem-solving and a range of technical skills. You will also have the opportunity to work on a substantial project of your own choice.
You’ll investigate the current trends and research activities in the computing community, and plan, undertake and evaluate a substantial computing project in which you will put into practice and develop your self-management, communication, critical evaluation and technical skills.
Specific entry requirements for the course are a recognised British Honours degree (or its equivalent) with a minimum of a 2.2, or its equivalent, in a Computing or Technology-related subject area; or a recognised British Honours degree (or its equivalent) in a non-computing subject area plus substantial relevant experience; or a BCS postgraduate diploma plus a PGD project; or qualifications deemed by the University to be equivalent.
Applications from all candidates will be considered on their merits. For international students IELTS 6.5, or its equivalent, is a minimum requirement.
