Our MSc in Information Technology is ideal if you have a degree in a subject other than IT or computing and would like to develop much sought after business-relevant IT knowledge and skills.

The MSc IT will help you to become a modern IT professional who can analyse, design, deploy, utilise and manage business-relevant IT-based systems and services. You will enhance, considerably, your understanding of modern IT-based business systems and learn how to address related development, acquisition and deployment issues in modern organisations.

The MSc IT examines issues, trends, current practices and technological alternatives in the field of business Information Technology and provides you with up-to-date technological and business skills, and specialist knowledge to help you design and/or implement appropriate, IT-driven solutions in ways that address the needs of modern business organisations.

The MSc IT provides a common foundation in IT for all students. This is then followed by a selection of modules which fall into two themes and depends upon your career goals and ambitions: a technical theme (eg Web Development, Database Development, Web Development or Networking); or a Business IT theme (eBusiness, Management or Analytics).
