Programme Description

This MSc equips you to work with tomorrow’s computer systems. Platforms may be mobile, embedded, distributed or multi-core, and require new techniques to make software efficient, correct and reliable. Networks may be wired or wireless, ad hoc or highly planned, high bandwidth or slow and unreliable – and overlaid with various applications and social connections. Computers are becoming aware of their surroundings: who is using them, where they are, what interfaces are available, how much energy they consume and the semantics of the data they process. Together these advances lead to challenges of a scale that dwarfs the problems computer science has solved up to now.
