Start date
September 2024
12 months (full time)
Dundee City Campus

If you have graduated from a non-computing subject and are looking to enhance your computing skills then this is the course for you. (If you already have a degree in Computer Science or a related subject, consider MSc Advanced Computer Science.)

Develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of computing and the engineering behind computer programs and databases whilst designing, developing, and producing computer software packages.

You will study a range of modules, including software development, database systems, software engineering, and human-computer interaction, allowing you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Our regular seminars and guest speakers allow you to learn from those working within the industry, increasing your understanding of real life situations you could face in your career.

You will also have access to a range of conventional and specialised equipment and software, such as Windows Azure, Teradata, and Tableau, helping to further develop your skills and understanding.

Under the guidance of our academic staff, you will undertake a development project based on your own interests. Recent projects examples have looked at the estimation of blood vessel widths in images of the human retina and exploring the potential of virtual reality in software design.

This is a conversion degree so you can change career or become qualified in a discipline which is not related to your undergraduate degree. Have a look at our other Computing conversion degrees:

“It has been an intense year, full of new topics to study. I enjoyed the opportunity to fully immerse in study. The course is well balanced, offering insights into both programming language and the designing of complex systems. I have met dedicated professors, and their interest, passion and patience helped to keep me motivated to do my best.”
