Course summary


This two-year full-time MSc Information Systems course aims to give you a full understanding of how information systems (IS) are designed, constructed and integrated within organisations. Your studies will take into account the large, varied and distributed nature of IS today, with multiple devices in different locations being used to access systems.

This course is designed for students with a higher national diploma (HND) or equivalent in computing who want to gain a Masters degree in this field. It is an integrated course, combining studies for the final year of an Honours degree with those for a Masters degree. As a result, this is a challenging and engaging course to take.

Throughout your studies, you will benefit from our highly supportive culture and extensive industry experience, as well as high-quality computing resources.

Course detail

This MSc Information Systems will build on the knowledge and skills taught on traditional computing courses studied at higher national diploma (HND) level or equivalent. Expanding on this foundation, you will learn about the challenges and solutions for introducing IS into enterprises and organisations.

The success of any IS/IT strategy is largely dependent on specialists who recognise diverse business needs and understand how technology can support an organisation to achieve its goals. Your studies will cover system architecture and supporting technologies as well as the effective management and delivery of content and data.

The skills and knowledge that you will develop on the course, including those in practical work, report writing and critical academic writing, will prepare you to complete your final dissertation.

Throughout the course, you will have access to laboratories and dedicated information and communications technology (ICT) suites, as well as specialist networks and software, the University library and digital resources.

This course will help you gain a full understanding of how information systems are designed, constructed and integrated into an organisation.
