About

Develop your knowledge of computing, software development, and the engineering behind computer programs and databases through the MSc Applied Computing from University of Dundee.

Overview

If you have graduated from a non-computing subject and are looking to enhance your computing skills then the MSc Applied Computing from University of Dundee is the course for you. This is a conversion degree so you can change career or become qualified in a discipline which is not related to your undergraduate degree.

You will study a range of modules, including software development, database systems, software engineering, and human-computer interaction, allowing you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Our regular seminars and guest speakers allow you to learn from those working within the industry, increasing your understanding of real life situations you could face in your career.

You will also have access to a range of conventional and specialised equipment and software, such as Windows Azure, Teradata, and Tableau, helping to further develop your skills and understanding.

Under the guidance of our academic staff, you will undertake a development project based on your own interests. Recent projects examples have looked at the estimation of blood vessel widths in images of the human retina and exploring the potential of virtual reality in software design.
