Master of Science by Research (Computer Science)

Masters of Science in Computer Science in the Mathematical and Computing Sciences Group, Faculty of Science (FOS), is a programme that fosters pure and applied research in different areas of Computer Science. MSc by Research in Computer Science includes the elaboration of short projects in a broad range of pure and applied research topics. The research projects must be original, incorporate modern techniques and methods, and contribute to the advancements of the fields of Computer Science. Candidates will perform a research project under the supervision of Computer Science staff members.


Programme Details

Aims and Scope
The MSc Programme in Computer Science aims to make scientists with high level specialised training, in order to cover the increased needs of Industry in related aspects. Also, students wishing to continue their studies at a PhD level, will be able to prepare for the conduction of a PhD research on relevant topics.. Also, students wishing to continue their studies at a PhD level will be able to prepare for the conduction of PhD research on relevant topics. The scope of the Programme is to provide students the necessary specific scientific information, as well as to train them to develop their skills and analytical capabilities.

Structure
Students conduct an approved research project, with the supervision of one or more staff members. Upon completion of their research, they submit a Thesis, which normally does not exceed 60,000 words.

Assessment
Assessment includes examination of the Thesis by internal and external examiners. As stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations the examiners may subject a candidate to an oral examination or any other test they think necessary to assess the acceptability of the Thesis. Periodic assessment of the progress of the candidate is carried out as stipulated in the relevant UBD regulations.
