The Internet and Distributed Systems course will help you design and build secure, scalable internet applications and reusable software components.
This is a practical course which focuses on the development of applications and the management of data in a distributed environment.
An emphasis on practical issues and the current technologies used in the development of internet and distributed systems gives you the opportunity to conduct in-depth research into a specific issue in this area of computing. This dedicated preparation for a real role offers University of Brighton students an advantage when seeking employment within the computing industry.
Modules include both teaching periods and coursework activities.
All modules are designed to support both varied learning through workshops, seminars, lectures and group exercises, and the application of developed skills through assessed coursework.
As part of the course, you will also undertake a project that explores creative solutions to internet and distributed systems-related problems.
You will study five core modules and select two modules from a range of options.
Optional modules allow you to specialise in the aspects of the course that interest you the most.
