MSc FT Computing and Information Systems

G5U5 MSC 1 Year


This MSc is an intensive one-year generalist programme for highly motivated graduates with a good honours degree, but with little prior experience of computer science. You will develop theoretical and practical skills in computing and information systems development. The programme includes modules which introduce core aspects of computing, including a double module in object-oriented programming (using Java), plus modules covering Systems Analysis and Software Engineering – essential for anyone seeking a career in Information Systems development. The core modules are supplemented by optional specialist modules covering a broad range of subjects relevant to the software industry, such as Network Programming, Business Information Systems and Graphical User Interface design. Your project work will typically involve the design and implementation of a significant piece of software within your chosen specialism. Projects undertaken for external organisations are encouraged.
