Course content

Southampton Solent University’s applied computing masters programme places a unique focus on graduate employability, focusing on developing the specific skills that industry employers are seeking.

One of the ways that the course team ensure the curriculum is achieving this goal is through regular consultations with an industry liaison panel. This panel advises the course team on the latest industry developments and the course content is changed accordingly.

These strong links with industry have provided previous School of Media Arts and Technology students with access to a range of work experience opportunities, case studies and guest lectures.

Computing students at Southampton Solent have the opportunity to use industry standard facilities throughout their studies. Our EC Council certified security and networking labs feature a wide variety of equipment from Cisco (including Cisco Packet Tracer), Fluke and HP, as well as high-fidelity simulation systems like the market-leading Opnet. Students also have free access to our devices lab, where they can test their web design projects on a variety of different computing devices.

Students are supported to develop a range of transferable skills throughout the course. These include project management, problem solving and analytical skills that empower students to work in a range of different industries after graduation. Students will also develop high-level academic skills, perfect for those who are hoping to pursue a PhD.
