Why pursue a Master's in Computer Science?

Academic qualifications still matter

A quick scan of popular job portals shows that the prerequisite for many PME roles is minimally a bachelor’s or master’s degree qualification. Master’s holders certainly have the edge. 

Higher degree graduates are 100 times more rare

33% of locals are bachelor’s degree holders whereas only 0.3% are graduates of higher degrees*, resulting in master’s degree graduates having an academic advantage over most workplace peers and job applicants.

The IT & digital sector is booming post Covid

Singapore went through 5 years’ equivalent of digital transformation in the first 8 weeks of the pandemic¹, resulting in the need for an additional 1.2 million digital experts in the country by 2025². A Master’s in Computer Science will help you take advantage of this sky-high demand, especially with up to 92% of businesses in Southeast Asia countries continue to spend more on cloud computing³, driving it to be one of the most in-demand skills by 2025⁴.

Modules

Learners will acquire the skills to perform data analysis and visualisation tasks using Python, data manipulation on how to load, clean, and transform data using Pandas and array manipulation, mathematical operations, and statistical analysis using NumPy.
Learners will acquire a solid foundation in machine learning concepts and techniques, gaining an understanding of its principles and applications. They will explore supervised machine learning, where they will learn to develop models for classification and regression tasks. Additionally, learners will delve into unsupervised machine learning, which involves clustering and anomaly detection methods.
This module will equip learners with essential knowledge and skills in Python programming for computer vision applications, gaining a comprehensive understanding of computer vision concepts and techniques, as well as the ability to apply them effectively using the OpenCV library.
Learners will acquire a comprehensive understanding of generative AI Models, gaining insights into their functionalities and capabilities. Additionally, they will explore OpenAI and its practical implementation, particularly focusing on harnessing the potential of ChatGPT for diverse purposes, including research and content generation.
This module will equip learners with essential knowledge in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning as they gain a comprehensive understanding of AI and Deep Learning concepts, including Artificial Neural Networks, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs).
Learners will learn to identify and comprehend different Agile management frameworks, including their principles, values, and methodologies. They will gain the skills to implement Agile project management practices, including Scrum ceremonies, artifact management, and iterative planning. Additionally, they will develop the expertise to build high-performing Agile teams, fostering collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. Learners will also acquire the ability to effectively plan and implement Agile projects, breaking down requirements, prioritizing work, and adapting plans based on feedback and changing project needs.
Learners will undertake a capstone project that integrates all the learned skills and knowledge. They will develop a comprehensive data science project that involves validating, transferring, integrating, and deploying models using Microsoft Azure. This project will provide learners with hands-on experience in working with real-world datasets, applying data analytics techniques, and effectively presenting their findings.
This module provides learners with expertise in systems security, cryptography, and web security. They will learn to secure computer systems, employ encryption for secure communication, implement authentication methods, and identify vulnerabilities in web-based applications. Learners also gain proficiency in block cipher algorithms for advanced data encryption. The purpose of this module is to prepare learners for roles in cybersecurity, emphasising the protection of digital assets and the maintenance of reliable system operations.
This project module involves learners actively applying the concepts that they have learned throughout their master’s programme to a real business case. It serves as an opportunity to assess their analytical, organizational, decision-making, relational, and operational skills. A tutor will evaluate the project based on criteria such as the relevance and originality of the topic, the quality of data collection and analysis, the effectiveness of analytical tools used, the practicality of proposed solutions, the application of knowledge acquired during the master’s, and the student’s commitment and rigour. The final exam includes a discussion of the project, where the assessor considers the preliminary evaluation and assesses the overall quality of the work, presentation skills, and the student’s reasoning.
