Computing Science at Aberdeen encompasses both the theory as well as the practice of computing, with special emphasis given to Distributed Information Systems and Knowledge Technologies. This 5 year MEng programme is an integrated Masters degree that emphasises additional academic rigour and depth on top of the already high standards of our BSc. Helping doctors to treat a newborn baby, analysing the huge volume of data from the human genome, tracking jet engines in flight and ensuring that maintenance is planned accordingly, and making online shopping easier and more secure - these are just some of the challenges that computer scientists rise to every day by using their technical analysis, design and programming skills that they learn at university to create better and more intelligent tools. The highly relevant curriculum, along with strong industry links, ensures that computing programme graduates have an advantage in a competitive market place. The British Computer Society (BCS) recognises our single Honours degrees for professional membership without additional examinations. The employment record of our graduates is excellent with the vast majority entering occupations of their choice within three months of graduation, in sectors as diverse as banking, pharmaceuticals and computer game development. The MEng is an integrated Masters degree that emphasises additional academic rigour and depth on top of the already high standards of our BSc. It adds an additional year of study to the traditional BSc, but there is also a greater focus on the academic and theoretical skills that high-end employers and academic institutions particularly value. The MEng provides the opportunity for students to acquire a distinctive edge. It does this through increased depth of study, but it also requires students to demonstrate their ability by having them take on the most challenging subjects.
Founded in 1495 we're one of the oldest UK universities, offering over 600 undergraduate courses. Teaching is organised into three colleges: College of Life Sciences and Medicine, Physical Sciences and Arts and Social Sciences. A place in halls is normally guaranteed to first-year students on or within walking distance of the main teaching site.
