- To complete the MSc degree you must undertake a project in an area of your choice, worth 60 credits. You will investigate a challenging but constrained computing science problem, and will design, implement, evaluate, and demonstrate a software system.
- The project will integrate the subject knowledge and generic skills that you will acquire during your Masters.
- We offer a wide range of projects, and each student is normally allocated a different project. We take your preferences into account when we allocate the projects.
- You will also have the opportunity to propose your own project, subject to academic approval.
Here are some typical project titles:
- Big Data modern database showdown
- Support for PBS batch jobs in Hadoop 2.0
- Real-time corroboration of information from Twitter using follower graphs
- A Hybrid Learning to Rank Approach for an Effective Web Search Engine
- Fair pricing models for the Big Data era
Furthermore for students hoping to continue into research, we have four major research sections:
- human computer interaction (GIST)
- formal analysis, theory and algorithms (FATA)
- information, data and analysis (IDA)
- computer systems (GLASS)
Most MSc students choose projects offered by these groups, giving them an opportunity to go on to PhD study. See details of our research
