Projects

Projects

  • Modes of delivery of the MSc in Software Engineering include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in lab, project and team work.
  • To complete the MSc degree you must undertake a project worth 60 credits. This is a project chosen by you to investigate a challenging but constrained software engineering problem where you 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.

Example projects

Here are some typical project titles from recent years:

  • Java API for matching problems
  • Model for multiple structured views over the same information set
  • On-line skills development for reviewing written text
  • Scenario-based training system for interactive medical devices
  • SCRUM simulator
  • Web service composition

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.
