Descrição

Computer Science influences every aspect of modern life and is one of the fastest moving academic disciplines. It contributes to everything from the efficiency of financial markets to film and TV graphics and has a huge impact on both economic competitiveness and human wellbeing.

Informação importante
Quais são os objetivos da formação?

Our course not only offers a balance between advanced computer science theory and practical experience, but has a very strong focus on contemporary research. Practical work is an important part of every module and the School of Science and Technology has strong links with industry, including companies such as Microsoft and Siemens. The university is very active in the exploration of a number of areas, including computer graphics,mobile development, human computer interaction, robotics, artificial intelligence, ethics, ubiquitous computing, functional programming, algorithmic biology, image and video analysis, quantum computing, computational biology and visual analytics, and this research influences the course very strongly.



Our course is aimed at students who've studied computing for their first degree, and wish to make themselves stand out further by developing an advanced mastery of the subject.

Requisitos: Interviews, entrance tests, portfolios and auditions Entry onto this course does not require an interview, portfolio or audition.

What you will study
The course includes four taught modules: software development; distributed systems; interaction and visualisation; and advanced topics in computer science. These will be followed by your independent project.

The first of these three modules will cover object oriented software design and development; computer aided software engineering; agile techniques; distributed and concurrent systems, and designing and developing programs for them; human computer interaction, visual analytics and designing interactive visual computer systems. You’ll learn to analyse and choose from a range of programming paradigms; design, develop and set up complex software; produce software to a given specification; develop network and web based applications; and use modelling and abstraction techniques to design of software systems. You’ll also look at security, professional and legal issues.

For the advanced topics in computer science module, you’ll choose two topics from a range, all closely allied with research done at the university. The university is very active in the exploration of a number of areas, including computer graphics, mobile development, human computer interaction, robotics, artificial intelligence, ethics, ubiquitous computing, functional programming, algorithmic biology, image and video analysis, quantum computing, computational biology and visual analytics.

This module will also include some seminars on research methods, carrying out literature reviews, project planning, preparing a research proposal and data analysis to prepare you for your independent project. This can be either a design or research project – either way, you’ll plan and carry out an analytical study and evaluate the results of your research. You’ll be supervised throughout by a member of academic staff. You’ll be assessed on your research proposal, written dissertation and a viva voce exam, in which you’ll justify and reflect critically on your work and discuss possible further developments.
