Course Introduction

This flexible programme offers a broad range of advanced study options, reflecting the emerging technologies in industry. This is a multidisciplinary programme and, in addition to pure computer science modules, you may choose options where computer science intersects with other fields and builds on your first degree. Allow you to personalise your programme through a wide range of employment-relevant module choices. Build your links with industry and potential employers, we have excellent links with industry, working together on commercial and research projects.

The industrial placement takes place towards the end of the first year for a maximum of 12 months. While it is your responsiblity to secure a placement, the school will offer guidance and support in finding and securing the placement. If you are not able to secure a placement by the end of your second semester you will transfer on to the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience, this change would also be applied to any visa if you were here on a student visa.

Throughout the course, postgraduates have access to a careers programme to prepare them for applying for work after graduation. This programme includes workshops on job hunting and job applications as well as employer events to facilitate networks and help students to explore their options. Recent careers events open to Computer Science postgraduates include the IT and Technology Fair, featuring Accenture, Babcock, BskyB, FactSet, Framestore, IBM, one-to-one sessions with Morgan Stanley, IBM and Accenture, IT company presentations, and Start Up Stand Up for those interested in working with technology start ups and SMEs.
