What will I learn?

The Advanced Computer Science with Internet Economics MSc is intended for you if you already have a first degree in Computer Science, or in Economics, or a closely related subject. To meet the increasing demand for MSc students to have industry experience, we have introduced this new two-year MSc programme. Designed for graduates of the highest calibre the MSc will develop advanced knowledge and skills and give you the opportunity to put your knowledge into practice through valuable work experience during a one year industrial placement.

The programme is suitable for you if you wish to extend your knowledge with more advanced specialised material reflecting current research at the cutting edge of the discipline of Algorithmic Game Theory, which lies at the intersection of economics and computer science. It is a novel and unique programme, the first of its kind in Europe, offering a range of modern topics that range from optimisation and computational game theory to network games, and modern applications in electronic commerce, such as Google sponsored search auctions. It is offered by the Computer Science Department, with contributions from the University of Liverpool Management School.

During the placement year you will spend time working in a relevant company suitable for the MSc. This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical engineering experience which will boost your CV, build networks and develop confidence in a working environment. Many placement students continue their relationship with the placement provider by undertaking relevant projects and may ultimately return to work for the company when they graduate.

The University of Liverpool has a dedicated team to help students find a suitable placement. Preparation for the placement is provided by the University’s Careers and Employability Service (CES) who assist students in finding a placement, help students produce a professional CV and prepare students for placement interviews.

The University has very good links with industry and several companies work with us to offer our MSc students competitive placements. Although industry placements are not guaranteed, the University offers you opportunities and support throughout the process to ensure that the chance to find a placement is high.
