You will learn specialist computer science techniques and fundamental theories, but you’ll also have the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice by developing applications and working with real software. We cover a range of topics, including real time graphics and computational science, and you can choose from options including artificial intelligence, robotics and visualisation – built upon a solid foundation of good programming skills.
The course begins in September each year and lasts twelve months. There are two trimesters of taught modules, followed by an individual dissertation project during the third trimester.
The Advanced Computer Science at the University of Hull aims to create an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft’s DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the University, you can download the software free of charge.
The MSc Advanced Computer Science programme is designed to open pathways to postgraduate research, as well as a wide range of careers. The computational science module introduces concepts and ideas which will help prepare you for further study; the industrial placement option, meanwhile, will enable you to practise your skills and knowledge of computer science in situ, giving you a useful insight and advantage when it comes to starting your career.
The MSc graduates typically gain roles including: applications developer; business systems analyst; computer analyst; computer programmer; computer operations manager; data management analyst; database assistant; developer support engineer; games programmer; information manager; IT design; IT systems manager; IT technician; IT user support; mobile developer; operations director; software designer; software developer; software engineer; solutions developer; systems engineer; technical sales; technical specialist; and web developer.
