Computing and IT

If you’re looking to gain the practical skills to succeed in the IT industry, our taught Masters degrees in Computing enable you to enhance your technical and personal skills and apply your knowledge to real-life problems.

You can join a broad-based MSc or specialise in cyber security or data science and analysis.

As an alternative to our taught Masters degrees, if you want to focus on a particular topic of computing in depth, our MRes Masters by Research or PhD Doctor of Philosophy provide the opportunity to do so. You can also train to teach computer science and information technology in secondary schools.
