Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn
Designed for graduates who want to move into computing from another discipline, this one-year programme attracts students from diverse career and subject areas who wish to be introduced to the skills required for a career in Software Development.
This MSc Computing offers students from diverse career and subject areas a balance of software engineering skills and technical abilities required for a career in Software Development.
Through this one-year programme you will get a first-hand understanding of the vital problem-solving role of software, the interdisciplinary opportunities available, and what computational systems can achieve.
Through a gentle introduction and intensive support, you will be introduced to programming skills using important languages such as Java and Python. Emphasis is placed on handling data and you will develop essential skills in SQL (Structured Query Language) for advanced database functionality using industry standard products such as Oracle™.
A choice of taught optional modules allows you to further develop skills in areas of your choice.
Graduates from these programmes will be ideally placed for employment in the computing industry or for careers requiring a combination of their graduate discipline with computing expertise.
The distinctive features of this course include:
- An opportunity to take a conversion course which is also an accredited course recognised by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.
- The opportunity to complement the discipline in which you graduated with the discipline of Computing.
- Tailor the course to your interests through a range of advanced optional modules.
- Flexible choice of project topic, for example: associated with the research activity of the School fulfilling a business need reflecting your own interest.
- You will be provided with a laptop during induction week that will remain with you throughout the duration of the course.
Ble byddwch yn astudio
Ein hymchwil amlddisgyblaeth sy'n rhoi ffurf i'n rhaglenni gradd, ac yn eu gwneud yn berthnasol i gyflogwyr heddiw, gan eu gosod mewn sefyllfa dda i fanteisio ar ddatblygiadau yfory.
Meini prawf derbyn
Cwrs trosi yw hwn. Mae cyrsiau trosi yn eich galluogi i astudio pwnc nad yw'n gysylltiedig â'ch gradd israddedig neu'ch gyrfa bresennol, a'ch cefnogi gyda newid gyrfa. Nid oes angen gwybodaeth na gradd flaenorol yn y pwnc.
Applicants will possess minimum of a 2:2 honours degree or equivalent professional qualification in a subject other than computing.
Non-graduates whose relative lack of formal qualifications is compensated for by their relevant work experience will also be considered.
Applicants whose first language is not English are normally expected to meet the minimum University requirements (e.g. 6.5 IELTS, with at least 5.5 in each area).
Applicants holding international qualifications are welcomed.
Note: International students pursuing part-time programmes of study are not eligible for Tier 4 (General Student) visas and must have alternative leave to remain in the UK if they intend to study at the University in person.
Please feel free to supplement your application with a detailed CV or any other supporting material you may consider to be appropriate.
Programmes commence in September each year but applications made directly to the University are considered throughout the year.

Strwythur y cwrs
You will study core modules to a total of 100 credits, with one optional module worth a total of 20 credits. Students will also undertake an individual project and dissertation (worth 60 credits).
This course is a full-time programme undertaken over one calendar year. It is also available as a part-time programme over three years, and with placement.
Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2021/22. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2021.
|Teitl modiwl||Côd modiwl||Credydau|
|Computational Thinking||CMT119||10 credydau|
|Fundamentals of Programming||CMT120||30 credydau|
|Algorithms, Data Structures and Programming||CMT219||20 credydau|
|Topics, Research and Skills in Computing||CMT221||10 credydau|
|Software Engineering||CMT313||30 credydau|
|Computing Dissertation||CMT403||60 credydau|
Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
Dysgu ac asesu
Sut y caf fy addysgu?
The School of Computer Science and Informatics has a strong and active research culture which informs and directs our teaching. We are committed to providing teaching of the highest standard and received an excellent report in the most recent Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) review.
A diverse range of teaching and learning styles are used throughout the MSc in Computing and the MSc in Computing with Placement. Students will attend lectures, participate in seminars, workshops and tutorials, and carry out practical and laboratory work.
Students obtain support materials either via Learning Central (Cardiff University’s Virtual Learning Environment) or from study packs specially developed for selected modules.
Students will also undertake a project and independent study to enable them to complete their dissertation. Dissertation topics may be suggested by the student or chosen from a list of options proposed by academic staff reflecting their current interest.
Sut y caf fy asesu?
The taught modules within the programmes are assessed through examinations and a wide range of in-course assessments, such as written reports, extended essays, practical assignments and oral presentations.
The individual project and dissertation will enable students to demonstrate their ability to build upon and exploit knowledge and skills gained to exhibit critical and original thinking based on a period of independent study and learning.
Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?
As a School, we pride ourselves on providing a supportive environment in which we are able to help and encourage our students.
All students are allocated a personal tutor who will monitor your progress throughout your time at university and will support you in your Personal Development Planning. You will see your Personal Tutor at least once each semester.
Outside of scheduled tutor sessions, our Senior Personal Tutor runs an open door policy, being on hand to advise and respond to any personal matters as they arise.
The School has a formal student-staff panel to discuss topics or issues of mutual interest, in addition we schedule fortnightly informal gatherings over coffee for all students and staff associated with MSc Programmes.
Feedback on coursework may be provided via written comments on work submitted, by provision of ‘model’ answers and/or through discussion in contact sessions.
Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?
You will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both those which are discipline specific and more generic ‘employability skills’, such as being able to:
- Critically analyse and evaluate current issues in computing.
- Clearly communicate ideas, principles and theories by oral, written, diagrammatic and practical means.
- Demonstrate self-direction, initiative, professionalism, critical judgement and planning skills in tackling and solving computing problems using appropriate technologies.
- Demonstrate software design and programming skills.
- Design, using appropriate tools, a simple information system or selected part of a larger system.
- Creatively apply computing knowledge and techniques to the solution of computing problems.
- You will also develop a number of valuable research skills through completion of the dissertation.
Furthermore, graduates will be expected to demonstrate:
- A systematic understanding of general computing concepts, both theoretical and practical.
- An understanding of the methods, techniques, and tools available to specify, design, implement and manage computer based systems.
- An understanding of the principles and characteristics of computer and communications hardware and software and of how these support the development of computer systems.
- A critical awareness of current trends in selected research areas of computing, and discuss their contribution to developing computer based systems.
