Months of entry
Cloud computing is revolutionising the way that large, and often complex, datasets are stored and analysed. Our course aims to produce experts in cloud computing and big data required by academia and industry.
The MRes can only be applied for as part of the four-year (MRes plus PhD) EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Cloud Computing for Big Data. The programme is suitable for students from both computing and mathematical backgrounds. It is very skills-focussed and also offers a high degree of research training.
Our course focuses on both theory and practice so that you can understand and implement cloud computing applications. You will cover key subjects such as advanced object-oriented programming, data mining and big data analytics.
All academic staff involved in teaching cloud computing modules have international reputations for their contributions to the field and some have extensive experience as practitioners in industry.
