Department of Computer Science Postgraduate Courses
New M.Sc. Degree
The degree, Master of Science in Computer Science is a 1 calendar year degree programme when read on a full-time basis and fifteen (15) months when followed on a part-time basis. The part-time version of the degree includes measures aimed at minimising the amount of time which students need to spend on campus, with a view to block-schedule lectures after 3pm, thus minimising career interruption.
The degree programme can be followed in one of two modes: (i) mainly-taught or (ii) mainly-research. The mainly-taught option is targeted at students who are interested in enriching their knowledge in a wider breadth of ICT subjects using taught study units as their medium. Students who take this option would be required to read 60 ECTS worth of taught study units whilst working on a 30 ECTS dissertation component. On the other hand, the majority-research option is targeted at students who would like to form a more in-depth understanding of a particular field within Computer Science. This would involve them reading for 30 ECTS worth of taught study units followed by a dissertation component worth 60 ECTS.
