About the course

The programme is designed to provide in-depth knowledge and skills within the field of computing. The course is aimed at students who already have a first degree in computing, have some existing software engineering skills, and wish to deepen their knowledge. This programme will have a strong focus on how data can be exploited within an organisation and will emphasise the communication of that data to a target audience.

Graduates would undertake a range of tasks associated with IT in organisations, and develop sophisticated solutions to IT problems.

Course Overview

The main themes of the programme are:
-Web based application development
-Database development, deployment and integration
-Project and team management in the computing sector

This programme will equip students with those

Student Profile(s)

Archie Watt

4577.jpg Archie Watt is a PhD student who joined UWTSD as an undergraduate to study Computer Networks, now he's completing his PhD investigating the use of AI technology in the monitoring and analysis of our coastline.

Studying at UWTSD prepares you well for a research career, he says, and his work has practical applications with particular regard to the proposed Tidal Lagoon in Swansea Bay.

Archie explains what made him come to UWTSD Swansea and why he stayed: “I came for the course and location. There is also the Cisco CCNA qualification that you can gain as well as your degree. It’s an industry-recognised professional qualification that improves your employment prospects.

“I decided to stay as the staff here are very supportive and encouraged me to do a research degree. Having had a great experience during undergraduate study at the university I didn’t want to go anywhere else.”

Archie’s thesis, which is about the combination of wireless sensor networks and AI to monitor and predict coastal processes, is supervised by Dr Carlene Campbell, Associate Professor Stephen Hole, Professor Ian Wells and Professor Mike Phillips. Their expertise and support has been a huge benefit to his work, he says.

“I would say come to UWTSD because of the location, the very supportive staff and the wide base of expertise which opens up opportunities in interdisciplinary research. You don’t have to stick to one area and then try and figure out how it might fit with another afterwards, but rather you are able to have an understanding of how different disciplines link together at the beginning of your research.” He adds “It prepares you well for a research career,”.

Archie’s interest in computing has also taken him overseas, including the Google top contributor summit in California.

“I went to Google’s Webmaster Forum as I had some questions of my own. Whilst I was waiting for my questions to be answered I saw some others that I could answer myself, and following that I gradually started participating in the forum on a regular basis,” says Archie. This led to Google flying him over to the US and a chance to learn more about what goes on at their HQ.

As a doctoral student, Archie isn’t obliged to give lectures, but there have been opportunities to do so. PhD students in the school also benefit from their own research office which offers the opportunity to be around other researchers working in similar areas.
