The MSci in Computer Science with a year in industry is a five-year degree leading to a Masters qualification.

Preparation for the placement begins in the first year where support and guidance is provided to help you secure an appropriate salaried post. Furthermore Swansea University has developed strategic relationships with key employers who provide industrial placement opportunities for our students. These providers work closely with the department throughout your programme of study, giving you the opportunity to develop and grow a strong and meaningful relationship with sector specific businesses, and ultimately strengthen your employment prospects and greatly enhance your CV.
