The MSci Computer Science with a Year in Industry offers a new route into jobs in industry and academia. It suits individuals who want to pursue a career in which they solve problems using rigorous scientific principles. It provides an integrated Masters level degree.
The first three years of the MSci Computer Science are the same as the BSc in Computer Science, which makes it easy to transfer from one to the other. In the fourth year students undertake a large scientific project drawing on the research strengths of the department in the areas of Human Computer Interaction, Theoretical Computer Science and Visual Computing (Graphics, Vision, Data Science and Visualisation). The aim is to solve a problem using key Computer Science principles taught during the programme.
