The MEng Computing is a four-year degree leading to a Masters qualification. This degree is aimed at those students who are committed to a career in the software development industry.
The MEng in Computing differs from our other schemes in that it continues for a fourth year of study. Unlike the BSc in Computer Science, which aims to give a general education that spans the broad technical and scientific range of the subject of Computing, the MEng is aimed at the specific needs of advanced software development.
The first three years of the MEng are identical to the BSc in Computer Science (because advanced software development requires all the general skills of a Computer Scientist). The fourth year of the MEng forms a specialised, advanced education in software development.
One half of the fourth year is made up of projects - both individual and group. You will develop skills in software development, team working, planning, specification, design and risk analysis to a high level.
