Course content

As the technology for integrating computer and communication
systems matures, there will be greater emphasis on developing
appropriate services and applications. MSc in Mobile Applications
seeks to strike a balance between advanced study of
heterogeneous network infrastructure and computing systems and
the study of the development of applications for new devices and
technologies (mobile, ubiquitous, wearable). The success of the
next generation of mobile systems will depend largely on the ability
of the industry and academia to develop and provide appropriate
applications to the users of the new mobile and wireless world.
The MSc in Mobile Applications course is designed for
graduates wishing to bridge the disciplines of computing and
digital content management and creation, with special emphasis
on mobile applications.
