Contents

* Modes of delivery of the MSc in Software Engineering include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in lab, project and team work.
* To complete the MSc degree you must undertake a project worth 60 credits. This is a project chosen by you to investigate a challenging but constrained software engineering problem where you will design, implement, evaluate, and demonstrate a software system.
* The project will integrate the subject knowledge and generic skills that you will acquire during your Masters.
* We offer a wide range of projects, and each student is normally allocated a different project. We take your preferences into account when we allocate the projects.
* You will also have the opportunity to propose your own project, subject to academic approval.

Example projects

Here are some typical project titles from recent years:

* Java API for matching problems
* Model for multiple structured views over the same information set
* On-line skills development for reviewing written text
* Scenario-based training system for interactive medical devices
* SCRUM simulator
* Web service composition

* Furthermore for students hoping to continue into research, we have seven major research groups: computer vision and graphics; embedded, networked, and distributed systems; formal analysis, theory, and algorithms; human computer interaction; inference, dynamics, and interaction; information retrieval; software engineering and information security. Most MSc students choose projects offered by these groups, giving them an opportunity to go on to PhD study.
