For graduates with substantial experience of computer science, this programme will develop your expertise and skills in software engineering, preparing you for a career in software engineering, software maintenance and software testing. Research for your individual project will provide valuable preparation for a career in research or industry.
This programme focuses on advanced techniques for the development of software systems, with an emphasis on the construction and management of internet-oriented, agent-oriented and large software systems. It is built around taught core modules such as software design and architecture and a group project that provides experience of working in a syndicate to design, implement and document a substantial software product.
These modules are complemented by a range of optional modules that relate to various aspects of computing. The final part of the programme is an individual project which is closely linked with the Department's research activities.
