Course summary

If you want to move into the computing and information systems field, or if computing plays an increasing part in your role, the MSc Computing and Information Systems is ideal personal development. This postgraduate computing course is designed for people who have little or no previous experience or specific qualifications in computing or information technology, though you should have some related experience or skills that you wish to build upon.

We place emphasis on the effective use, design and development of software for information systems. You will become skilled in programming and learn how to design and implement information systems. Graduates of this computing Masters course will have relevant, up-to-date knowledge, along with the professional and technical skills needed to develop, manage and employ information systems applications in a range of organisations.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.

Assessment

Several modules are assessed entirely through coursework and some involve coursework and an examination. You will also work on a significant research project and major project of your own choice where strong independent thinking, critical analysis and project management skills will be important.

Careers

Graduates of the MSc Computing and Information Systems degree have a very strong record in gaining employment. To enhance your employability, the skills and knowledge you gain on the course are directly relevant to industry. You could develop a career as a project manager, software developer, information manager, or in the newly developing area of data analytics. This Computing Masters is also suitable if you are interested in continued professional development.
