This programme offers the opportunity to work alongside academic staff whose research has been internationally recognised. Researchers in the School include Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering, Professor Nigel Allinson MBE, and Professor of Intelligent Robotics and Interactive Systems, Professor Marc Hanheide. Academics staff at all levels of seniority and research students can benefit from a supportive community and environment in which to share ideas and experiences with the aim of advancing knowledge.
Developments in artificial intelligence, computer vision, robotics, mobile technology, machine learning, and cyber security have all become a normal part of society’s interaction with computing devices.
This research programme offers the opportunity to develop your expertise in a particular area of computer science and to consolidate your skills in preparation for positions in research development or technology management.
MSc Games Development and Design is designed to build on students’ existing computer programming skills, providing them with the knowledge and expertise to develop contemporary video games using a variety of advanced tools and platforms such as virtual reality.
The Innovation in Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Management MSc (ISR) is designed to bring together practitioners from a wide area of ISR systems in a comprehensive academic programme. The programme has been developed in order to provide a route by which military personnel of appropriate experience and expertise can obtain an in-service academic qualification.
The MSc Intelligence Systems is a work-based programme that has been developed to specifically provide the opportunity for Armed Forces personnel (both serving and retired) to validate aspects of their service history through a recognised higher education route.
Teaching on this programme is a combination of different techniques including a “hands on” practical approach to scenarios and workshops, debates, lectures and independent research. Example modules for study include advanced intelligence systems management; complex signals analysis; electronic warfare and information operations; and managed intelligence databases.
This programme combines a computing core with computer vision, data science, and machine learning specialisms. This offers students the theoretical and practical experience needed to develop the innovative solutions required in a dynamic and innovative technology sector.
The MSc Robotics and Autonomous Systems is designed to equip students with the advanced knowledge and skills needed to develop the innovative solutions required by the emerging global industry in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS), and across many other sectors where RAS skills are applicable. These may include agri-food, automation, industry 4.0, healthcare, logistics, military, nuclear, security, and transport. The programme can also prepare students to continue their study in a research capacity, allowing them to further specialise and focus their interests.
