Further information

Programme information for the Postgraduate Certificate in Pre-doctoral Studies is also available. This programme is for international applicants for the MPhil/PhD Computer Science, who need to improve their English language and research skills, or whose research ideas are not yet firm enough to undertake doctoral studies. It is delivered by INTO Exeter and the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

Having worked in Electronics, Photonics and Communication industry for 28 years (1974-2002), I am familiar with the developments and qualifications required in the industry. Based on this, I found the need to update my skills and chose Exeter to pursue my Masters. However, after completing my MSc Applied Artificial Intelligence at Exeter, I decided to carry on to PhD in Computer Science.

University of Exeter is beautiful, has a good reputation and is in a convenient location. It has a relaxed environment which helps during your study. The supervision is well organised and there are plenty of social opportunities to interact with fellow students.  I particularly enjoyed the variety of work, useful applications, intellectual challenge and the opportunities for team work. There are opportunities to represent the University and I did in a project meeting at Imperial College (FRMRC2).

The Centre for Water Systems and the Computer Science department in the University have an excellent track record of collaborating and working on projects using cutting edge artificial intelligence techniques on real problems relating to the water industry. Some of the areas that have been worked on are water supply and distribution, urban and fluvial flood modelling and prediction. Such is the exposure in the University and I would recommend this University to anyone interested simply because you get an opportunity to be supervised by world leaders in their field of study.
