The Computer Science MSc aims to provide a thorough introduction to computing. Students gain a sound knowledge of the theoretical basis and practical applications of computer science, to enable them to find employment in the computer industry, or to apply computing techniques in the subject area of their first degree. What and how will I learn? The programme emphasises the rigorous scientific aspects of computing. Students develop an understanding of the architecture of computer systems, including hardware and systems software, programming, the principles of software engineering and interaction design, standard data structures and algorithms and gain the ability to construct programmes using a modern programming language. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of five core courses (75 credits), three optional courses (45 credits) and a research project (60 credits). Core Modules Introductory Programming Design Architecture and Hardware Systems Infrastructure Algorithmics Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent computer-based science project which culminates in a dissertation in the form of a project report. Options Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks Communications and Networks Database Systems Functional Programming Image Processing and Graphics Interaction Design Introduction to Business and Entrepreneurship Medical Scientific Computing Software Engineering MultiMedia Computing Quantitative and Computational Finance Project Management Compliance, Risk and Regulation Mathematics (not credit bearing) Further details available on subject website: http:www.cs.ucl.ac.ukadmissionspg_msccs.html The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures and tutorials. Lectures are often supported by laboratory work with help from demonstrators. Student performance is assessed by unseen written examinations, coursework and a substantial individual project. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Department of Computer Science is recognised as a world leader in teaching and research, and was one of the top rated departments in the country according to the UK government's recent research assessment exercise. Our Master's programmes have some of the highest employment rates and starting salaries, with graduates entering a wide variety of industries from entertainment to finance. We take an experimental approach to our subject, enjoy the challenge and opportunity of entrepreneurial partnerships and place a high value on our extensive range of industrial collaborations.
