Places and funding available for the e-Science MSc/Diploma programme 2006/2007 - University of Edinburgh.
The e-Science MSc programme is a collaboration between Edinburgh's Schools of Physics and Informatics, in conjunction with the National e-Science Centre. It aims to provide students with a grounding in the principles underlying e-Science and experience of working with e-Science and Grid Computing technologies, and will prepare them equally well for a career in academic research or in the commercial IT sector.
In addition to the core e-Science courses, students may choose options from a large pool of courses from the Informatics MSc and the MSc in Geographic Information Science, plus the MPhys programmes in Physics and Astrophysics, so that each can design a curriculum tailored to their individual interests.
The principal entry requirement is a 2:2 (or equivalent) or better in a degree which provides experience of computer programming: the course language is Java, but this is taught from scratch as part of the MSc, so the requirement is only that students have proven expertise in a programming language.
Further details of the MSc programme are available online at or by .
Places are available on the MSc for entry in September 2006, and some funding is still available for suitably qualified UK or EU students: anyone wishing to be considered for funding is strongly recommended to contact by email as soon as possible.
