Masters in Research in Computer Science
Aims of the Programme
This is an advanced postgraduate programme offering a one-year, full-time or two-year, part-time research project, taught modules and seminars. Students follow a module on research methods in Computer Science and Information Systems as well as 3 taught modules relevant to their research interests. Students who complete the programme will have gained an in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge of their chosen area of study which they will be able to use in analysis of problems arising in information management and information systems development, evaluation and application of technologies, and research into new technologies. They will also have gained the necessary foundations for continuing into an MPhil/PhD programme.
Students will have the opportunity to undertake their research within ongoing research projects in the Department. At the end of their period of study, students will give a seminar on their research project in addition to submitting a written thesis. Several of the taught modules will include guided study of the research literature, including seminars and tutorial discussions.
