Teaching

The course is taught by staff from the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering with some contribution from Industrial experts. Teaching is mainly in the form of lectures, but IT sessions and seminars are also used where appropriate.  Modules are shared between two ten-week teaching terms running October-December and January-March. Although work for the MSc dissertation commences during the second term, most of the research work is carried out during the summer months.
