A first of its kind, this new MA in Film Curating explores both the traditional and the rapidly changing ways in which films are programmed by curators and received by spectators. In film exhibition today, the old and the new coexist: audiences still watch films in cinemas, but digital technology and the internet have multiplied ways of consuming moving images. Digital technology has also transformed the relationship between film and art: galleries and museums now routinely exhibit film in shows and installations. Film festivals are flourishing in new formats and locations as never before. These changes have profoundly affected practices of curating and programming.

This intensive (1-year, full-time) MA includes in its curriculum: the old and the new aspects of programming and curating; theoretical considerations of audience; spectatorship and reception; and the changing spaces and temporalities of film exhibition. The MA combines these strong critical, theoretical and academic foundations with site visits and internships in London galleries and exhibition spaces, as well as screenings and programming in the Birkbeck Cinema. Students will be taught by internationally distinguished academics and cultural practitioners such as Professor Laura Mulvey. Lectures from industry professionals and experienced curators provide a first step towards possible careers in art and film or for further research into the cultures of curating.

Starting in 2016, and currently under development, Royal Holloway will offer a new Masters in 'The Internet of Things' (IOT).

The Internet of Things is a new and fast expanding area in Computer Science, technology and engineering: it concerns the systems of networked devices that are now sensing, transmitting and acting on data. A series of reports place the IoT as a new and transformative technology domain that will require millions of developers by 2020.

The course will educate and train you in the key areas required for operating the generation of networks of connected devices that are starting to proliferate (smart homes, smart cities, smart cars, and so on): data analysis, storage and processing; distrbuted and networked systems; and information security.

Facilities include a laboratory where you can experiment with physical devices that can be interconnected in a network, and a cluster facility for processing and analysing real data sets.

Please note this programme is subject to validation.

See the website https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/computerscience/coursefinder/msctheinternetofthings.aspx

Why choose this course?

The Masters in The Internet of Things at Royal Holloway will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in three essential and critical areas:

- Data analytics is essential for getting value from the IOT. For example, in Formula One racing there are hundreds of sensors providing thousands of data points for analysis such as tyre pressure and fuel burn efficiency, which have to be collected in real-time for very quick analysis by race engineers onsite.

- Distributed computing and systems concern technical aspects such as algorithms for distributed coordination, time-synchronisation, scalable storage, virtualisation and cloud computing technologies, as well as methodological aspects such agent-based modelling and simulation.

- Cybersecurity is another essential aspect of the IOT. Recent news such as the safety recall issued by Fiat Chrysler of 1.4m vehicles in the US after tech magazine Wired reported that hackers had taken control of a Jeep Cherokee via its internet-connected entertainment system, are examples of how privacy, safety and security are major concerns for the IOT.

During your studies you will have 24/7-access to labs equipped with a state-of-the-art cloud computing testbed and a new generation of large-scale data processing platforms (such as Hadoop and MongoDB), which will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on real-life problems in areas as diverse as social network analytics, web data mining, and botnet detection.

The Masters in The Internet of Things at Royal Holloway will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in three essential and critical areas:

- Data analytics is essential for getting value from the IOT. For example, in Formula One racing there are hundreds of sensors providing thousands of data points for analysis such as tyre pressure and fuel burn efficiency, which have to be collected in real-time for very quick analysis by race engineers onsite.

- Distributed computing and systems concern technical aspects such as algorithms for distributed coordination, time-synchronisation, scalable storage, virtualisation and cloud computing technologies, as well as methodological aspects such agent-based modelling and simulation.

- Cybersecurity is another essential aspect of the IOT. Recent news such as the safety recall issued by Fiat Chrysler of 1.4m vehicles in the US after tech magazine Wired reported that hackers had taken control of a Jeep Cherokee via its internet-connected entertainment system, are examples of how privacy, safety and security are major concerns for the IOT.

During your studies you will have 24/7-access to labs equipped with a state-of-the-art cloud computing testbed and a new generation of large-scale data processing platforms (such as Hadoop and MongoDB), which will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on real-life problems in areas as diverse as social network analytics, web data mining, and botnet detection.
