Distributed systems play an increasingly key role in our day-to-day lives. With a focus on advanced techniques, you’ll learn how to build software systems that can better meet the demands of distributed platforms.

Course description

The presence of software applications as components of many different kinds of systems with dynamic configurations is increasing at an unprecedented pace. The focus of this MSc is on new methods, architectures and design techniques for software systems that are able to operate, with guaranteed levels of quality of service, across heterogeneous and distributed platforms.

What's the difference?

The PGDip includes the same modules as the MSc but without the final project.

Duration

The regular degree takes 12 months if you start in September, or 16 months if you start in January. The 'With Industry' degree takes 21 months if you start in September, or 24 months if you start in January.

NB. If you start your course in January, you will take Semester 2 before Semester 1.

Careers and employability

All our postgraduate Informatics degrees are available 'with industry': stimulating your creativity and capacity to innovate, and ensuring that you acquire key transferable skills. These courses will allow you to develop into a highly skilled professional, well versed in advanced methods and tools. Colleagues from industry participate directly in the delivery of some of the modules, including hands-on tutorials that allow you to use some of the tools and methodologies that are shaping the software development landscape.

We have an open approach to collaboration with industry. We undertake joint projects, provide consultancy services, and organise events to connect you with potential employers. We also run an Industrial Advisory Board: its members are computer scientists who hold successful careers in industry and who help us ensure that your training is industrially relevant.

Our Career Development Service is here to support you, with advice on interviews, CVs, work experience, volunteering and more. From Freshers’ Week to Graduation and beyond, they are here to help you reach your professional goals.
