Course content

If you already have a degree related to computing, this Masters gives you additional expertise in network systems. Employment in IT is forecast to grow more than three times faster than for UK employment as a whole, according to e-skills UK.

Your Masters project will involve a real-world project that is supported by a sponsor. It will include both a research and a practical element. The outcome will demonstrate your expertise not only to academic assessors but also to potential employers when you are applying for rewarding and fulfilling jobs.

The programme has recently been rewritten to include new modules and new networking topics. It has been designed to enhance the skills and career opportunities of those students with existing qualifications in a science or engineering discipline. It aims to provide graduates with a sound understanding of how to design and deploy complex networks.
