From day one you’ll be immersed in the expertise of our world-leading research team who are working at the cutting edge of computing science.

In the Advanced Computing Science course from the University of East Anglia , you’ll study key core subjects including our flagship module Advanced Programming Concepts and Techniques. Your lectures for this important area will cover historical, established and upcoming programming languages, functional languages, assembly and intermediate languages, code optimisation, high performance computing, software testing and modern frameworks. The finale of this module will see you produce a prototype of a professional standard software product to tackle a real world problem. You’ll develop this in groups or individually, following industrial software engineering practice and guidelines.

Your compulsory Research Techniques module will help you master crucial skills such as writing scientific reports and analysing and critically reviewing scientific publications. You will also develop your ability to analyse and process big data resources using basic and advanced statistical methods.

It’s all brought to life in our specialist MSc lab with state of the art computers and high-end graphics cards. You will also be able to use our motion capture studio, 3D printer, 3D stereoscopic monitors, humanoid robots, haptic feedback devices and mainstream Virtual Reality (VR) hardware.
