does our Course cover?
Our MSc course provides an advanced study of selected key topics of
current and future commercial relevance. Further details can be found
later in the prospectus.
Please note that Computer Science should not be confused with Information
Technology (IT). The term ‘IT’ describes the use of computer
technology where as Computer Science describes its development. For
example, an IT course might teach you how to use commercial software
applications and how to manage a computer network, whereas a Computer
Science course would teach you how to develop such applications and
how networks work.
