Course summary

Course Overview

Are you excited by the impact of technology on our everyday lives and keen to forge a successful career in the field? From day one, you will be immersed in an exciting, innovative environment where you will develop broad knowledge and skills in the main areas of computing and information technology which will be directly relatable to your future career.

You will take core modules covering areas of computing in programming, databases, systems analysis and design, and computer networks and web development. Designed in consultation with partners from industry, you will develop the most up-to-date computing knowledge, desired by employers across the industry.

In the second year, for one semester, you will have the chance to study in another country or join a research group. This valuable experience will enhance your employability and further develop your theoretical and practical skills.

Research

If you take this option, you will be assigned to our Computer Science and Informatics Research Group. There is every possibility that you may contribute to published research and therefore you may be named as part of the research team, which would be a great start to a research career.

Study Abroad

We have exchange agreements with universities all over the world, including partners in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Oceania. If you take the Study Abroad option you will spend a semester at one of these partners, continuing your studies in English but in a new cultural and learning environment.

Your Career

Industry practice has strongly influenced the design of the programme to give you the computing knowledge to work within a variety of roles in the sector.

Learning independently, working collaboratively on projects, evaluating and reflecting upon practitioner experience, are all essential skills of the computing profession. Your modules will enable you to do all of this and more as you develop the qualities needed for a career in computing.

The Advanced Practice semester will help you develop a track record of achievement that will help you stand out from other job applicants.

A two-year Masters course, like this one, will carry particular weight with employers. They’ll understand that you’ll have a deeper understanding of topics as well as more hands-on practical experience.

Upon graduating from this course, you will have an in-depth knowledge and critical understanding of the main areas of Computing and Information Technology, including the key areas of systems analysis, systems development, operating systems, networking, databases and the internet .

We place a real emphasis on developing the transferable skills that will open doors to a range of careers. These include communication, analytical and problem solving skills, technical skills and the ability to work independently and as part of a team.

Graduates are expected to work in a number of career opportunities across a wide range of computer areas including software engineering, systems analysis and design, computer networks, database development and management, software testing and project management.
