    Applying for MSc Advanced Computing!
    Hi buddy, I was wondering what is your background? My undergraduate degree is in Economics and I applied to the MSc Computing Science. However, I am in my gap year right now and have been self studying computer science so was wondering if I can hopefully switch to advanced computing or machine learning.

    Thanks!

    I'm currently in my final-year of BSc Computer Science at a Russel Group uni if that helps! Predicted 1st. Let me know if you'd like to know any more detail?

    May I ask how quickly you received an offer after applying? Did you have an interview?

    I am more curious about what sort of knowledge/programming skills you have so I can self study those as much as I can during this year and ask for a transfer haha I know its a bit of a vague question. Are you doing a final year project? If so, may I ask what you are doing it on?

    I applied on the 23rd October. References fully submitted on the 30th October. Received offer on the 7th November. I didn't do a Skype interview (was expecting one tho).

    To put it in a few lines, here are the main skills that a degree in CS gives:
    * Theoretical computer science -- this is the mathematics behind computation. Things like complexity theory (how 'hard' are problems), models of computation (how can we mathematically formalise what it means to 'compute' something).
    * Algorithms and data structures -- the study of algorithms for the solving of problems. Algorithms of course require some form of data, and how we structure this data is very important for how 'efficient' an algorithm is.
    * Programming -- very important for applied computer science. Learn C, Python, Java and Haskell for a good grounding. Each of these languages is a different type (procedural, interpreted, object-oriented and functional respectively). Feel free to replace each of these languages with a language from the same type.
    * Discrete Mathematics - many problems in computer science are discrete in nature (e.g. graphs, sets, etc.).
    * Logic - very important in complexity theory, discrete math, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, etc etc etc!

    Final-year Project: yes, my final-year project is on the satisfiability problem for modal logic and extensions such as PDL, CTL, modal mu-calculus, and products of modal logics. (Let me know if you want to know more about this!)

    Let me know if you want more detail!

    Hey buddy, thanks for the information. Thought I would move the conversation to PM to avoid me spamming this thread with my questions !
