Computer Science (by research) MSc
The MSc by Research can be started at any time in the year and is tailored to the individual student.
You will first take an induction course leading to the production of a learning contract with a research supervisor, you'll then develop a research proposal which is assessed and forms the basis of the rest of your study.
You will then progress to a period of independent research project work and complete a project dissertation. Upon successful completion of the MSc, you will have clearly demonstrated your ability to meet the required high levels of technical professionalism.
