Computer Science

A Masters degree is an academic degree awarded to individuals who successfully denote a higher level of expertise. There are two main types of Masters - taught and research.

There are several fields that make up the broader field of computer science. One of these fields is the computational complexity theory, which can be very abstract. Other fields, such as computer graphics, deal more with concrete and hands-on visuals.  

 

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Masters in Computer Science in Norfolk in United Kingdom. Why choose this course? The MRes Computing Science provides students with foundation training in the basic and advanced research skills sufficient to enter a Doctoral programme. The MRes programme is also suitable for candidates who may wish to obtain a research-oriented degree, but do not wish to commit themselves to a longer period of study. The MRes pathway has a greater research element than the other MSc programmes offered by the School, whilst also giving students the opportunity to gain credit for the taught components. MRes programmes are designed to bridge the gap between undergraduate studies and the skills required by professional researchers. Contact time Students have on average 15 hours of contact time per week with teaching staff through lectures, laboratory sessions and seminars, though this may vary depending on module choices. Additionally, students should allocate at least 25 hours per week for study, coursework assignments and projects. Teaching and assessment The MRes Computing Science is a full-time, one-year programme; it can also be taken part-time over two years. Once on the course, you will specialise in one of the broad areas of the School’s research. You will normally take three taught modules that are related to your area of specialism or that provide you with important background knowledge. You will also take a module in research techniques and a directed study module. The directed study module will related to your area of specialism and, often, it will have a project component. Your academic advisor will guide you through your module choices and assist you in choosing suitable study topics. There will be an emphasis on transferrable skills applicable to a future research career, including analytical and critical research skills, communication skills and project management. The dissertation element of the programme will be larger than that of our taught MSc courses, counting for 80 credits. You will choose your dissertation area early in the academic year, undertaking preliminary work on it during the spring semester and working on it full-time after the examinations until early September. Career opportunities As a graduate from this course, you will have an excellent foundation for entry to a Doctoral programme. You can also pursue a career in a commercial or public sector setting where you can exploit your research skills and specialist knowledge.
