Why study Computer Science?
The MSc by Research in Computer Science allows you to work with leading researchers in Computer Science. The purpose of the programme is two-fold. You are trained as a researcher, allowing entrance into PhD programmes in Computer Science, and are also expected to produce work of a high standard which can contribute to the field.
When you pursue an MSc by research, the topic that you will focus on will be formulated by you and your chosen supervisor. The wide variety of research interests in the school allows you to work on problems that you find interesting and which the broader community considers important.
Why study Computer Science at Wits?
The primary value of any educational institution is the group of people that it places you with. The researchers which Wits affords you the opportunity to work with are leading figures in their respective fields. You will join a motivated and very productive group of students who are publishing original research both locally and internationally.
