    Course Summary

    Edinburgh Napier University’s MSc in Computing is a great capstone to any undergraduate Computer Science degree, or a wide range of other qualifications within the field.

    This program includes a year in professional placement. It will be a great opportunity to conduct research training in a professional setting (for those with their hearts set on an academic career), or to ‘get your hands dirty’ in an industrial or entrepreneurial situation. Either way, you’ll have many chances to put your theoretical knowledge to the test in real world situations and gain vital professional skills.

    This degree program is aimed at international students in particular, so it is particularly adept at transitioning students from overseas undergraduate degrees to a UK Masters of Science program. In addition to a wide range of student support services at the academic level, you’ll have a dedicated member of staff to help you integrate into the university culture, and establish yourself as a qualified member of this exciting discipline.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This program is typically delivered over two years at full time. Part time options are also available.

    The actual structure is very flexible, as you can select form the School of Computing’s full list of available modules. This selection will be guided by your assigned tutor, and will combine the core elements of the MSc program as well as your personal and professional interests.

    Modules Include:

    • Master’s Dissertation

    As the capstone of the program, you’ll produce a dissertation based on your own original research project. This will be split into three primary deliverables – a formal Research Proposal, an Initial Report which must include an outline of the dissertation to follow and a Time Plan for its delivery.

These will be chosen by the course tutor, in accordance with the demands of the material and their own skills and preferences.
