Learning and Teaching

The MSc in Internet Systems and e-Business is a full-time taught programme aimed at all graduates who want to train in modern computing. It provides an opportunity to acquire the skills required to pursue a career in Internet-based information systems. The programme is also suitable for those who have been in industry or other employment, possibly involving increasing recent work with IT, and now want to improve their career by means of formal training and a recognised qualification. Students are registered for 12 months from the course start date at the beginning of October each academic year. The programme starts with an introduction to programming and then covers key details of software engineering and Internet technology.

The programme consists of seven lecture/tutorial based core modules plus a research project. The two modules in Object Oriented Programming, and Web Technology, each feature 18 hours of lectures plus 8 hours of tutorial contact time.

The three modules in Digital Imaging, Distributed Computing and Research Methods and Professional Issues each feature 12 hours of lectures plus 8 hours of tutorial contact time. The lecture module on Software Engineering for the Internet has 20 hours of tutorials. The lecture module on Enterprise and Distributed Systems use a variety of teaching methods. It might typically feature 24 hours of lectures, 8 hours of tutorials and a total of 91 hours of laboratory/practical classes. The total contact hours for all 7 of these modules is therefore 96 hours of lectures, 68 hours of tutorials and 91 hours of laboratory/practical classes.

A major individual research project is also undertaken during the course under the guidance of an appropriate staff supervisor. This provides an open-ended challenge to each individual student. Regular meetings are held with the supervisor to discuss project progress and planning issues. At the end of the project students are required to submit a dissertation documenting their project work. Students should expect to have around 5 hours of contact time with their supervisors over the course of their research projects.
