Course Description

COURSE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES Accredited by the IET. The past few years have witnessed that Grid computing is evolving as a promising large-scale distributed computing infrastructure for scientists and engineers around the world to share various resources on the Internet including computers, software, data, instruments. Many countries around the world have invested heavily on the development of the Grid computing infrastructure. Many IT companies have been actively involved in Grid development. Grid computing has been applied in a variety of areas such as particle physics, bio-informatics, finance, social science, manufacturing. The IT industry has seen the Grid computing infrastructure as the next generation of the Internet. The aim of the programme is to equip high quality and ambitious engineering graduates with the necessary advanced technical and professional skills for an enhanced career either in industry or leading edge research in the area of distributedgrid computing systems. Specifically, the main objectives of the programme are: To critically appraise advanced software technologies and principles for large scale distributed systems such as grid computing systems To practically examine recent development in distributed systems To critically investigate the problems and pitfalls of distributed systems in business, commerce, and industry. WHO IS THE PROGRAMME DESIGNED FOR?
