Course Description

On this course you acquire the theoretical knowledge and practical skills for the modelling, storing and distribution of data throughout an enterprise or wide area network. This course will draw upon a number of research papers and case studies to look at issues such as object orientation, data warehousing, service-oriented architectures and mobile databases. It will develop practical skills in areas such as Oracle database management, web services, extended relational data models and XML schemas. Course Structure: The course lasts for 12 months over three semesters in the first two there are four or more taught modules, to make a total of 120 credits, and there is a 60 credit project in the third. There are two core modules fixed for this course. You will also take two or more optional modules, making up 60 credits, which you can choose from the full list of advanced, specialist modules in Computer Science. Alternatively you can elect to replace up to 30 credits worth with masters modules taught by the University?s Business School. Visit our Module Descriptions page for further details. Note that Distributed Data Management is used in the generic sense rather than referring to proprietary products or technology offered by particular vendors. Core Modules: * Advanced Database (30 credits) * Web Services (30 credits) Project: In the third semester, you complete a project in your chosen specialism under the guidance of an experienced individual supervisor. Supporting tuition for the project includes the general principles of research methods. Through the project you will demonstrate your understanding of the principles and concepts you have learned in the taught modules and your ability to apply them to a substantial piece of development or investigative work. Careers Our masters programme at the University of Hertfordshire is designed to give Computer Science graduates the specialist, up-to-date skills and knowledge sought after by employers, whether in business, industry, government or research. This particular course will prepare you for a career such as database designer, web systems developer or data systems architect. Teaching methods Classes consist of lectures, small group seminars, and practical work in our well-equipped laboratories on our Hatfield campus. We use modern, industry-standard software wherever possible. There are specialist facilities for networking and multimedia and a project laboratory especially for masters students.
