MSc Computer Science

The MSc in Advanced Computer Science at Oxford has been designed to teach a range of advanced topics to graduates of computer science and other mathematical disciplines.

As in other branches of applied mathematics and engineering, improvements in the practice of programming require the determined and meticulous application of methods of mathematical understanding, calculation, and proof.

Recognizing this, this full-time, twelve-month MSc has been designed to teach the mathematical principles of specification, design, and efficient implementation of both software and hardware.

The MSc is designed to combine theory and practice. It teaches the advanced techniques and ideas that are being developed in application domains (such as machine learning, verification, and computer security) and the rich and diverse theories that underpin them. These include models of computation and data and mathematical analysis of programs and algorithms.
