This exciting new four-year MComp course combines undergraduate and postgraduate content.
This course has been designed to cover the computer science foundation subjects and then build on this foundation with postgraduate level material in the final year. You will acquire the skills to become an independent learner and gain advanced skills in specialised areas such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, advanced analysis and design, embedded systems and programming.
A group project to manage and deliver a significant multidisciplinary engineering project will help you to further develop your communication, project management and teamworking skills.
In addition you will undertake a substantive individual project where you will be required to develop software or hardware in an innovative manner.
You have the option to transfer between the MComp degree and the BSc degree during the first two taught years of the course, subject to your performance and your chosen module in year two.
You will also have the opportunity for a year-long paid work placement. The School has strong links with industry, both nationally and internationally. Our industrial partners include representatives such as:
- Walt Disney
- Fisher Scientific
- Hewlett Packard.
You will work with our highly-regarded academics, who are active in a broad range of research areas, achieving 80% world-leading or internationally-excellent research impact (REF 2014).
Many of our students join our academics in live project research and regularly co-author research papers. For example, the annual Interactive Technologies and Gaming Conference includes numerous papers based on student projects.
Your career development
This course provides a thorough education in computing for industry, meaning you graduate with the knowledge and skills for employment in almost all computing related fields. In particular, you will gain advanced skills in the development of systems based on advanced technology and in specialist areas such as artificial intelligence and embedded systems.
The technical nature of the course will also provide the necessary underpinning to enable you to engage in further scientific and technological research.
