What is Technical and Applied Computing MSc by Research?
Undertake postgraduate research while drawing on university expertise. Our specialisms include applied computing, artificial intelligence, cyber security, big data and data mining, business intelligence, e-business technology, application and management, IoTs, IT and IS, e-learning and digital forensics, and system modelling.
There’s a strong applied research focus in our School of Computing & Engineering – and particular interests in work that engages with the concerns of the user, the needs of businesses and the rapid developments within the IT industry and engineering sectors.
We may also be able to offer you effective supervision for cross-disciplinary projects that link to business management. As a research degree candidate, you’ll be supported by a supervisory team with expertise in your subject and/or research approach. A research degree will open the door to work in full-time research or teaching, or provide a greater understanding of professional practice.
The School of Computing & Engineering is active in pure and applied research, knowledge transfer and industrial projects. There are a number of dedicated laboratories for researchers. This strong and dynamic background means postgraduate researchers will join a group of about 30 research candidates involved in extending both new knowledge and professional practice.
All postgraduate researchers are required to initially take and complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Research Methods to support the development of their project and their education as researchers. We also offer a range of further research training events, postgraduate researcher-led seminars, conferences and summer schools – as well as training offered through other universities and bodies.
