    Course Summary

    The University of Southampton’s Computer Science MEng degree program was designed with a great deal of industry input. The intention was to create a program which turned out highly skilled, very employable graduates who are fully prepared to design, analyse and implement the next generation of hardware and software systems.

    Computer Science MEng students will study robotics, biologically inspired technology, social media applications, complexity theory and much more. There will be a strong focus on management, industrial collaboration and engineering design as well, particularly in the latter years of the program.

    As part of your fourth, Masters-level year, you’ll undertake a group project with a real world client. This will be one of Southampton’s partner organisations, and you will of course be closely supervised every step of the way.

    In addition you may elect to spend a year in industrial placement, making important working relationships in a real world context.

    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.
