Course Description

An advanced programme of study involving distributed programming, software technologies and architectures for building internet enabled enterprise systems. The main tasks facing industry at the moment involve the development of new internet enabled systems, the integration of legacy systems into intranets or extranets, and advanced internet publishing. There is a pressing need for people with skills in designing, building and maintaining such systems. This programme educates graduates in the applications necessary for the deployment of distributed computing systems over the internet. Typical content The following is an indication of current programme content. However, the rapidly changing nature of the subject area means that both the courses offered, and individual course content, may vary in future years. Finally note that certain combinations of options may not be available. Masters students take 120 credits of taught courses and undertake a 60 credit project. Core courses: Project and dissertation (60 credits including a 15-credit course in Research Methods) - a substantial individual project of your choice (must involve some aspect of internet technology) Enterprise Programming & Architecture (30 credits) Web Engineering (15 credits) Enterprise Web Engineering (15 credits) Options (to a total of 60 credits) chosen from: Distributed Data Management Technology (15 credits) Distributed Data Architecture & Management (15 credits) Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing (15 credits) Data Mining & KDD (15 credits) E-Business Applications (15 credits) Network Technologies & Design* (15 credits) Advanced Network Technologies* (30 credits) Software Engineering Management (15 Credits) Enterprise Software Engineering Development (15 Credits) Mobile Application Development (15 credits) Network Security (15 credits) Network Management* (15 credits) * Negotiable option - pre-requisite knowledge required. Students will be interviewed by a member of staff and may be required to take a test to ensure they have the necessary knowledge to succeed on the course. Specifics Entry requirements The normal entry requirement is a good honours degree in computer science or a related discipline. A good working knowledge of a programming language such as Java or C++ is essential. Professional recognition This MSc is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS), the chartered body responsible for establishing and maintaining technical and ethical standards in the computing profession. Subject to some straightforward conditions, the programme leads to full exemption from the BCS Postgraduate Diploma and PGD Project. Additionally, this qualification gives partial Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and can be combined with a partial CEng from an accredited BSc course to give full CEng status. Outcome Upon successful completion of this master's programme students could expected to become involved in the development of new internet enabled systems, the integration of legacy systems into intranets or extranets, and advanced internet publishing, either working as consultants or as senior members of software systems development teams.
