As computing continues to evolve at a remarkable pace, the expertise to harness the latest technology becomes more vital every day for organisations in every sector. Our Advanced Computer Science masters provides expertise – helping you develop the specialist skills for a career in computing.

You’ll cover core units exploring themes around high-performance computing, big data, advanced networks and operating systems. From there, you’ll have the flexibility to set the direction for your studies – first, with two option units covering areas like enterprise programming, cryptography or mobile computing, then with a masters project of your own design. While you’ll have the one-to-one support of your supervisor, it’s a solo project – as much about developing computing skills as it is about building confidence and autonomy, vital skills for the workplace.
