Course content

Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing technologies allow
interconnected devices to be embedded unobtrusively in
everyday appliances and environments, and to communicate
and co-operate to provide information and services on
behalf of their human users. The development of Mobile
and Ubiquitous computing applications and systems has
been identified by many visionaries as a key enabler in the
evolution of the next generation of technologies underpinning
the “Internet of Things”.
The M.Sc. in Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing in Trinity
provides an excellent, and globally unique, grounding
in the concepts, technologies and skills that underpin
this future vision, and in the principles and practices of
business technology leadership necessary to translate these
innovations into compelling products and services.
Creativity and innovation are fostered throughout the
course, and cohere around a strong emphasis on practical
engagement with the technologies, development and
business strategies, used in building mobile, ubiquitous and
“Internet of Things” computing systems.
Technical course elements include modern communications
and wireless platforms, advanced distributed systems
engineering, “big data” management and analysis, embedded
devices, security and end user interaction design. These
are tightly aligned with business innovation and technical
management strands to position graduates for both domain
specialist and technical leadership, management and start-up
innovation roles.
