The MSc in Computing Masters Qualifier will offer graduates in non computing disciplines the opportunity to acquire the core knowledge of computing concepts necessary to be eligible for entry to the MSc in Computing programme in the School of Computing. The philosophy behind the qualifier is that graduates from other disciplines will have developed significant transferable skills in analysis, communications and independent learning and so will be in a position to learn a focused subset of computing knowledge quickly.
Graduates of the Masters Qualifier exit with a Continuing Professional Development Diploma in Fundamentals of Computing and those who pass all modules and achieve an overall average mark of 50% can progress directly to the MSc in Computing programme.
Who Should Apply?
Graduates with Honours Bachelors degrees in non computing disciplines who want to get the core computing skills necessary to be eligible for entry to the DIT MSc in Computing programmes.
Applicants are expected to be able to demonstrate analytic ability and numeracy.
