MSc Information Systems

Course Description


Aiming to equip you whether you want to work in the IT industry, are already employed in it, or anticipate a research path ahead, this course allows a breadth of study while allowing for some specialisation through unit choice and project. It is possible to transfer between MSc Information Systems and MSc Computing as you develop your own interests in IT.

Supported by a dedicated team of technical staff, the School has excellent computing facilities including specialist Mac and PC laboratories with industry standard software and a state-of-the-art computer usability lab. Research in the school was rated highly in the most recent national Research Assessment Exercise, with some of our research rated as world leading.

Classes are concentrated on certain days of the week to facilitate part-time students’ attendance and allow full-time students to undertake part-time employment if necessary. Especially useful in the case of missed classes, the online virtual learning environment – using Moodle – provides extensive access to lectures, course materials and assessment information. Assessment will be through coursework, examination and dissertation.
