    Course Summary

    The University of Lincoln’s MSc in Computer Science is designed to give students with an undergraduate degree in some related field an enhanced understanding of Computer Science, and especially the hardware and software development skills they’ll need to take on a rewarding role in any number of today’s fastest growing industries.

    You’ll explore programming and coding, study the mathematical framework behind computer science and gain practical skills in a series of workshops, lectures and independent research projects. In the end, you’ll have developed an advanced understanding of robotics, computer vision, mobile computing and a range of other cutting edge CS applications.

    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 delivered over a single year at full time for most students. Part time options may be available as well.

     Core Modules:

    • Advanced Artificial Intelligence

    Here you’ll explore the theory and practical applications of AI in today’s computer science technology.

    • Advanced Programming

    Here you’ll explore an object-oriented programming language for commercial and scientific purposes.

    • Computer Vision

    You’ll learn the latest techniques in capturing, processing and analysing visual content.

    • Frontiers of Computer Science Research

    This will introduce some of the most cutting edge CS research being conducted at the moment, both on the theoretical and practical levels.

    • Machine Learning

    In this module you’ll explore the theory and practice of machine learning algorithms, data mining and related tasks.

    • Mobile and Connected Devices

    Here you’ll explore the possibilities of IoT platforms and the devices that use them. You’ll also design and prototype an IoT application.

    • Research Methods

    This module will give you the research skills you’ll need to successfully complete your research project.

    • Research Project

    The capstone of the program, this will involve undertaking a substantial project and a software implementation as well as documenting both with a dissertation.

    Learning And Teaching

    The methods used to teach the modules in this program is derived from the methods academic researchers at Lincoln use to push the limits of that field. You’ll gain practical skills from workshop and lab sessions as well as gaining theoretical, intellectual understanding through lectures seminars and interactive events. You’ll also do a great deal of individual study, and will put your skills to the test delivering an individual research project.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree gives you the understanding and practical skills you’ll need to enter any number of industries providing the hardware and / or software solutions that tomorrow’s technology and consumer goods will be built around. Alternatively, you might choose to pursue a more advanced degree, either at Lincoln or another prestigious university.

    Entry & Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-Nationals

    This MSc program requires a second class Bachelor’s degree or better in a related field. This need not be from a UK university, and a range of comparable academic qualifications can be accepted.

     

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated with an IELTS score of at least 6.0, with no component scoring less than 5.5. Again, a number of equivalent qualifications are accepted.

    They must also have academic accreditation equivalent to that required for UK and EU students.
