Course content

The M.Sc. programme in Computer Science equips students
with the theoretical and practical background necessary
to enable them to participate in the design of complex
networked and distributed computing systems, as well as
to undertake research in this area.
The programme is assessed based on a combination of
assigned coursework, written examination, and a dissertation.
The programme is composed of a number of modules that are
taken by all students. These modules include:
Networked applications: covers applications of the Internet
and Intranets ranging from email and the Web to electronic
commerce; collaboration and community services;
distributed artificial intelligence; and information retrieval.
Data communications and networks: introduces the
fundamentals of computer networks and networking
technology;
Distributed systems: covers the most important paradigms
for building distributed applications including client-server
computing, distributed object technology, and component
models;
Software engineering for concurrent and distributed
systems: covers object oriented analysis and design
techniques and their application to concurrent and
distributed systems; Security and management of networks and distributed
systems: introduces the fundamentals of computer and
network security and investigates different approaches to
network management and the management of advanced
information services.
