Engineering future leaders in technology
Our technology-driven lives mean software is at the heart of almost everything we do. In this business world, this makes professionals with the capacity to come up with, build, test and maintain software systems highly important.
Our MSc in Computer Science with Software Engineering enables graduates from non-computer science backgrounds to enter computer science and specialise in software engineering. You will gain the knowledge, understanding and application of practice in computer science areas including networking, human factors, emergent technologies and more, and develop specialised skills in software engineering. Our approach to teaching is interactive and learner-centred, so you can put the theory you learn into practice. You will complete your study with a research-oriented proposal and project, as a further opportunity to develop your software engineering specialisation.
With six starts per year, you can get your studies started in weeks and unconfirmed to the traditional academic year. You’ll also study completely online and on a part-time basis, creating the flexibility needed to fit your learning in around work, family and other responsibilities.
