STUDY COMPUTER SCIENCE ABROAD

Shape the future of futuristic technology

Have you been that kind of kid who used to explore the computer with a sense of knowing all the ‘how-s’ and ‘why-s’? Well, welcome! Take the lead of digital changes on the era of super smart technology and robotics. We know you can be the Gates of the future.
Computer Science and Informatics (Research)
Master's degree
Research in computer science and informatics is all about going beyond current knowledge and technologies to build the computing systems of the future. Technologies we now take for granted, like the web, smartphones, and databases, are all products of past research in computer science and informatics. So what will the future bring? Researchers here at Cardiff are currently working on new developments in areas like computer graphics, data mining, and ‘intelligent’ mobile systems. We hope that our research will enable new kinds of computing applications, products and systems to help people in areas like healthcare, the environment, security and business. Conducting research in computer science and informatics is exciting and challenging and we offer you the opportunity to work alongside our research staff who are leaders in their areas of expertise. They publish widely, edit and review for international journals, act as external examiners both within the UK and internationally, provide consultancy and secure research funding.

MSc in Computer Science
Master's degree
As a subject, Computer Science is in a state of constant flux, as is evidenced by such increasingly relevant topics as Big Data and the “digital agenda”. Globalisation and digitalisation of business and society are leading to a high – and largely unmet – need for IT specialists. In addition to other topics, there are bottlenecks among IT specialists with in-depth knowledge of cyber security. To a large extent, this high demand also arises from the fact that these are required not only in the IT industry, but also in all user industries.
