Course content

What is great about this computing master’s course is the flexibility it offers you – the direction you take is entirely up to you. You can design your programme from a huge range of subjects. Choose those that are most relevant to you and build a bespoke course that enhances your career opportunities and progression. This course prepares you for a wide range of careers in the computing industry. Whether you are a graduate looking at the first step on the career ladder or a current employee looking to turn your industry experience into qualifications, this course is flexible enough to meet your needs. It is ideal if you already work in the field of computing and want to develop new skills, and equally relevant if you are a recent graduate wanting to develop the technical knowledge and understanding to progress to your chosen career. You can expand your existing knowledge and develop new skills in areas including: systems hardware; hardware; networks; web; programming and IT management. To enhance your employability and career prospects further, we offer you the opportunity to complete a six month internship within industry before completing your master’s project. Internships are optional and competitive but if interested we work with you to find an appropriate industry match and prepare you for interview.
