MPhil Computer Science / Programme details
Year of entry: 2020
The MPhil consists of one year of research culminating in an MPhil thesis and often leads to a full PhD.
As one of the largest Departments of in the UK we cover a huge spectrum of Computer Science topics. We currently have ten individual research groups ranging from Advanced Processor Technologies to Text Mining. Our core Computer Science research is augmented by interdisciplinary research taking place at the interface with discipline areas including mathematics, physics, medicine and biology. A detailed overview of the Department's research groups and core and interdisciplinary research themes is available in the 'research' area of our website .
We're keen to receive applications from potential research students in all areas. Although your application is through the Department, you are basically applying for a place in a research group or with a particular supervisor. You therefore need to look through our research to find a suitable topic or potential supervisor. Alternatively you can identify a possible project from our list of available projects .
