Career opportunities

Through our close collaboration with industrial partners we continually seek to ensure that the MSc Advanced Computer Science gives our students the cutting edge technical skills and knowledge - as well as the consultancy, team and project management skills that are required for success in careers where advanced computer systems are developed or used. Our students have progressed to work for a range of different companies after their studies. For example, Greenhous Group and Radius Payment Solutions. Other students have become freelance application developers. Some of our students who have worked on advanced projects in Keele’s Smart Energy Network Demonstrator have progressed to study their PhD at Keele after successfully completing the MSc. The University has a Careers and Employability team who can provide you with advice and guidance about your future career. The team offer specialist workshops, for example 'Options with Postgraduate Study' and Moving on with your PhD', and can also meet you individually to give guidance and support to help you develop your career. We also hold regular careers fairs on campus and informal events where you can meet employers. You will also have access to our database of job opportunities and digital resources such as online psychometric testing.
