This programme is designed to meet the demands of the increasing use of mobile devices, which are being coupled with cloud computing to provide applications and services to users and enterprises.
About the programme
A number of prominent technology experts, including Apple CEO Tim Cook, have been proclaiming the focus of software innovation has nearly completely shifted from an emphasis on developing tools for use on full-size personal computers to developing for mobile devices.
The MSc Mobile Web Development programme intends to develop these skills and produce graduates who are in a position to target employment opportunities in software development for the mobile web.
Many of the learning outcomes are practical and a large proportion of class time is spent in computing laboratories engaging with the appropriate tools and acquiring practical knowledge. Theoretical knowledge is provided through lectures, tutorials, seminars and individual study. Active learning is promoted through practical assignments. Certain classes and assignments involve problem-solving through analysis, evaluation and the synthesis of a solution reflecting the practical emphasis of the programme.
To achieve a Postgraduate Diploma you must successfully complete the core modules including: • Web Development • Mobile and Web Design • Computing for the Mobile Web • Ethics for the IT Professional • Dynamic Web Applications • Mobile Development • Security for the Mobile Web • Research Design and Methods
The Masters research project and dissertation is necessary for those students seeking an MSc in Mobile Web Development. Part-time students may exit the course with a Postgraduate Certificate in Web Development (as opposed to Mobile Web Development) after completing one of the following module combinations successfully: Web Development and Computing for the Mobile Web with; Dynamic Web Applications or Mobile and Web Design; and Ethics for the IT Professional or Security for the Mobile Web.
