Course content

The past decade has seen a phenomenal growth in the
convergence in media communication, and a number of distinct
and specialised areas have emerged including website design,
security, usability issues, virtual reality, modelling and animation,
e-business, e-learning and communication.
A career in web technologies requires knowledge of the
development, design and implementation of software, mobile
content, human-computer interaction, virtual reality, business
security, internet systems and protocols, research skills and
e-business, in addition to a well-developed set of creative,
problem-solving and team-working skills.
This programme will present you with a more demanding
intellectual challenge than would be expected at undergraduate
level by providing a taught course that extends your knowledge
and skills, and which is also accessible to graduates from other
relevant disciplines.
It provides opportunities for you to gain a sound understanding
of the concepts, systems and methodologies of web technology,
alongside development of practical abilities and discipline skills
relevant to the field of study, equipping you to become a wellqualified
professional able to take a lead in designing, developing
and exploiting existing and emerging web technologies.
You will have opportunities to apply specialist skills and knowledge
across specific areas of study, and to demonstrate critical
judgement, research ability and proficiency in project management.
Special Features:
Our teaching in this area is backed up by an international research
programme in imaging, visual computing, multimedia, computer
animation, virtual reality, digital video, human-computer interaction,
telecommunications and artificial intelligence
