首先,爱丁堡大学Informatics专业采用学分制,一共三个学期,每学期60学分,共180学分。前两个学期为授课制,第三个学期进行毕业设计和论文。
每门课学为10分或20分,如没有特别说明,大多数课程都是10分的。毕业设计为60学分。
除了下文罗列的课程,每个学生要修20学分的Informatics Research Review(第一学期)和20学分的Informatics Research Proposal(第二学期)的课,是对将来学术研究的方法进行科学指导。此外,每个学生要修一门程序设计课程,大部分方向修Introduction to Java Programming,少数方向修其他编程语言课。
总结起来如下:
1、分别在第一学期和第二学期选择IRR和IRP,各占20学分
2、从规定的专业领域内选择至少50学分的课
3、可以从其他领域选择课程至总共120学分,包括编程语言课
4、第三学期完成毕业设计60学分

下面介绍Informatics Msc专业的可选方向。
在专业设置上,爱丁堡大学信息学院Msc分为人工智能(AI)、认知科学(CG)、计算机科学(CS)和信息学(Inf)几个专业。其中前三个专业每个都有不同的方向可以选择,而Informatics专业的方向包含了前三个的所有方向,可以说是对之前的综合。
详细来说,Informatics专业方向分为:
1、应用数据库方向Analytical & Scientific Databases(CS)
2、生物信息方向Bioinformatics, Systems & Synthetic Biology
3、认知科学方向Cognitive Science(CG)
4、软件工程方向Computer Systems, Software Engineering & High-Performance Computing(CS)
5、智能机器人方向Intelligent Robotics(AI)
6、知识管理方向Knowledge Management, Representation & Reasoning(AI)
7、数据挖掘方向Learning from Data(AI)
8、自然语言处理方向Natural Language Processing(AI)(CG)
9、神经信息学方向Neural Computation & Neuroinformatics(CG)
10、理论计算机科学方向Theoretical Computer Science (CS)
每个方向后面括号中的缩写表示它也属于该专业方向。
需要解释的是,本来Informatics还可以选信息经济学、音乐信息学等特有方向,不知道为什么今年取消了,只剩下生物信息苦苦支撑。

The courses offered combine a good grounding in the core areas of the subject with experience in the practical application of theory across a range of theory-based Software Engineering tools. These courses will be of particular interest to students with a mathematics background. The practical components of these courses will consider both the use and implementation of tools. Each of the courses in this specialist area aims to provide a balance between theoretical topics and their application in software development. In many of the courses the theory suggests the construction of tools to aid software production. Students will meet a variety of these tools during the course and will have the opportunity to develop skills in their use as well as studying the techniques used in their implementation.
