The industry

The UK’s IT industry is worth over £58 billion annually. With employment of IT professionals expected to grow nearly twice as fast as the UK average between now and 2020 (e-skills UK), it looks like demand for well-qualified information technology graduates is set to remain strong.

A postgraduate qualification can put you at the forefront of this demand, demonstrating your commitment to the industry and your ability to carry out in-depth computing research.
Currently there is very high demand for those with technical skills in a wide range of areas with most demand in software development, SQL databases, web scripting and Agile development. Along with this demand, careers in these areas often carry higher than average salaries.

This is echoed in reports and comments from industry:

“As a small software house, dealing with a group of international corporates, we have a regular need for graduates with strong software engineering and database skills. Given that we design systems that link to e-commerce, a good understanding of cyber security engineering is also key. Over the years we have found the pool of graduates with the required technical skills has seriously diminished, so the more technical graduates from Solent University are an important source for us.”
John Noden, Managing Director/Executive Director Technical Design, Zentive

In addition, the CBI (2015) have indicated that the skills gaps in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is affecting employers and have indicated that STEM-qualified graduates are at a real advantage in the jobs market, with four out of ten employers preferring STEM graduates over other graduates.

The programme

Southampton Solent University’s computer engineering master’s conversion degree exposes students to a wide range of both existing and emerging technologies and covers areas such as coding, software development, problem solving, computing, digital and engineering.

Working with the latest technology, students on this course will also have the opportunity to learn to program robotic devices, and can learn to develop apps for Android devices. To test these apps, students have access to the University’s new device laboratory which is a special test area consisting of a range of mobile devices, allowing students to assess their website designs and apps on real equipment.

The course curriculum is developed with input from a variety of sources, including an industrial liaison panel, to ensure students are studying the latest technology and working practices employed by industry experts.

With a strong focus on employability, and to complement studies, this course offers students the opportunity to work on live briefs, events and projects with real-world companies. Regular industry speakers and events by the BCS can help students to build their professional network.

To aid study, computing students at Southampton Solent have full access to the University’s industry-standard IT, computing and networking laboratories. These labs are set up with the latest design and development software, including Adobe Creative Cloud and GNS3.

‌•The course comes to a close with students conducting their own research projects. This can be an excellent way to specialise knowledge, or act as a springboard for PhD study.

The industry

Recent research conducted by the UK government suggests that the costs of cybercrime to the UK could be in the order of £27 billion per year. To combat this, the Government has invested in a National Cyber Security programme which aims to make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace.

The cyber security sector has grown to over £17 billion in the UK, employing over 100,000 people. With the increasing importance for organisations to ensure their computer networks are robust against attempted security breaches, this sector is likely to grow, with high demand for skilled cyber security engineers.

A postgraduate qualification can put you at the forefront of this demand, demonstrating your commitment to the industry and your ability to carry out in-depth computing research.
This is echoed from reports and comments from industry-

“As a small software house, dealing with a group of international corporates, we have a regular need for graduates with strong software engineering and database skills. Given that we design systems that link to e-commerce, a good understanding of cyber security engineering is also key.

“There is absolutely no doubt that he demand for analytics talent is increasing rapidly. This is happening for two reasons, firstly many more job roles are requiring data skills and secondly there are many more specialist openings for people with data skills than they were in recent years.”
Tom Brown, The Information Lab

The programme

The one-year master’s level conversion course is designed to prepare students from a range of academic backgrounds for work in data analytics engineering. Students are also able to tailor the course to their own personal career ambitions through a research project. Many use this piece of work to springboard the start of their career or a further research study.

Topic covered include databases, data management, web technologies, analysis and computing fundamentals. Students will also study academic research methods, which will then inform their final research project.

Students are also supported to gain a range of transferable skills throughout the course. These include project management, critical thinking, organisation and presentation skills. The professional issues and practise unit helps prepare students for the workplace by looking at the wider computing industry and the contexts in which big data can be used most effectively.
