Description

This course is aimed at Computing graduates who wish to specialise further in Computer Science improving their knowledge, understanding, skills and capabilities. Our postgraduate courses are concerned with vocational education, and it is anticipated that the majority of MSc graduates will either enter employment (or continue) as IT/Computing professionals, or progress to doctoral work with a probable view to pursuing academic or research careers.

You will study four specialist, advanced units including High Performance Computing and Big Data and Advanced Computer Networks and Operating Systems. A wide-range of optional units allow you to tailor your course to specialise in areas of your choice. A third of your MSc will consist of a solo project with individual supervision. This is supported by a series of seminars/workshops, but the emphasis is on student-centred learning and recognises expectations about student autonomy, typical of postgraduate level and also is part of the strategy to enhance your employability through the development of confidence, self-awareness and self-sufficiency.

We are a member of the Oracle Academy and highly rated in terms of research. Our supervision and facilities are also excellent.

Core units

- High Performance Computing and Big Data
- Advanced Computer Networks and Operating Systems
- Masters Project

Option units

- Introduction to Data Science
- Enterprise Programming
- Cryptography and Encryption
- Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
- Data Management and Machine Learning

Career prospects

This course will equip you for a range of IT positions in the private and public sectors and is also a good foundation for further study. Our MSc graduates have entered a wide range of industries or gone onto PhDs, including in the School of Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology.

Careers support is available from the moment you join us, throughout your time here, and for up to three years after the completion of your course. We have a range of services available through the School of Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology and the University Careers Service including dedicated careers and employability advisors.

In today's organisations, technology is a business-critical resource integrated into the fabric of business operations. There is a growing recognition that businesses need to leverage big data in order to maximise competitive opportunities. This programme focuses on both of these elements in preparing you to achieve a balanced combination of technical competence coupled with an understanding of business intelligence.

The programme will allow you to develop the acumen necessary to identify opportunities for the organisation through understanding data, as well as the ability to build a case for exploiting and deploying technological solutions.

The familiarisation of information technology for analytics will develop your appreciation of how these can be integrated into business operations. This course is taught by experienced tutors with real world consultancy and research expertise in the field of digital business.

An MSc in Business Analytics will help you get the skills and knowledge you need to secure a graduate job in specialist roles such as consultant, data analyst, manager or business analyst.

Open to graduates holding degrees in any subject, this course assumes no prior knowledge of business or management and is suitable for UK, EU and international students wishing to progress their academic knowledge of business analytics and business intelligence. It is also suitable for those who do not have a degree but possess relevant experience.

The number of units you study will depend on if you choose the PgCert (60 credits), PgDip (120 credits) or MSc (120 credits of units + 60 credit dissertation).

There is wide recognition of a growing skills gap in the Business Analytics (also known as big data analytics) field. According to a recent e-skills report on employment demand, in the past 5 years, demand in the UK for big data staff has grown by 912%.

Special Features

• You will be taught in the internationally recognised multi-award-winning Business School on All Saints Campus.
• Extensive use of the University's online virtual learning portal (Moodle) to provide additional learning materials, communication and also as an aid to discussions.

Behind-the-scenes business visits

As a Masters student of the Business School, you have the opportunity to participate in a number of free business visits that allow you to see behind the scenes of real companies and learn about how these businesses are structured and operate.
