Summary

Course Description

The new MSc in Computer Science has a common set of entry criteria and leads to a Master's degree in Computing specializing in one of four exciting areas: Data Science, Intelligent Systems, Graphics and Vision Technologies and Future Networked Systems.

The course is designed and taught by staff who are renowned research leaders in their fields. The course content is inspired by their cutting-edge work as well as their contacts with leading industry researchers around the globe.

In the first semester, students gain the necessary skills in Research Methods (to enable students to produce their own dissertation), Innovation (to equip students with skills in company formation or innovating within a large company) and Machine Learning (a foundational technique for each of the specializations). In addition, students will make a start on their specialist modules in their chosen strand.

During the 2nd semester, students will begin foundational work on their dissertation, and immerse themselves in modules of their chosen strand.

The 3rd semester will be exclusively focussed on the Dissertations, doing experimental work, building prototypes and writing up the work.

We expect our graduates to be in high-demand for top-end research and development positions within leading multi-national companies and from startup-companies alike. There will also be opportunities to progress to PhD study with many funded positions available locally.

Intelligent Systems Strand

The Intelligent Systems strand focuses on smart, interactive web applications and systems, which are becoming an integral part of our daily lives - at home, in the workplace, and in social interaction. Designing and building these systems requires expertise in artificial intelligence, human language understanding and generation, web systems and applications, data analytics and knowledge engineering. This strand is closely linked to the school's research groups involved in the ADAPT centre for Digital Content Technology.

Career Benefit

The marketplace of the future will see intelligent behaviour becoming the standard for computer systems. The courses within the Intelligent Systems strand will provide graduates with the ability to specialise in intelligent adaptive systems and artificial intelligence, providing them with the necessary skills to become leaders in these fields. Employment opportunities exist in a wide range of areas such as internet based services, financial services, mobile communication companies. Students will also benefit from the comprehensive research scope, networks, and wealth of research achievements in both the School and the ADAPT Centre.

Course Content

Along with the core modules in the first semester, you will gain a grounding in Information Retrieval & Web Search, you will examine in-depth the theoretical and practical issues involved in searching the web or any or large corpus of documents, including text processing, ranking scores, classification etc. In Knowledge & Data Engineering, you will learn about the semantic web including model design, reasoning and querying. Finally, you can choose one subject (5 credits) from a pool of MSc modules allowing you to complement your core interests in Intelligent Systems.
