Technology is one of the greatest agents of change in the modern world and it represents a significant opportunity and risk for businesses of all sizes. Developers play a central role in how we interact with the online world and employment in the IT industry is expected to grow at nearly 5 times the UK average over the next decade (CIO, 2015).

Northumbria University’s part-time MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies is taught by industry experts around leading-edge content, and is designed to give you the knowledge and expertise to fill this gap.

What will I study?
Northumbria University’s part-time MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies provides a firm grounding in strategic web development skills, with a specific focus on mobile development. Blending training with academic rigour, our programme will enable you to develop the lifelong skills needed to rise to the challenge and opportunity of emerging technologies and engage in the ‘bleeding edge’ field. An area which is notoriously high risk and has an increased potential of unreliability.
You will study the core skills required to gain a deep understanding of contemporary web development, industry practice and analysis which forms the basis of next generation technologies. This programme also focuses on mobile development and web development skills you need to engage and succeed in the cutting edge of technology.
During the programme you will also develop independent research skills to manage risk and identify, recommend and deploy relevant technologies both now and in the future. Throughout the course, you will study with a diverse group like-minded IT professionals, share ideas, and build upon your professional network.
How will I be taught and assessed?
The part-time programme is designed to enable working professionals to fit their study around their work and personal life. The programme is assessed through modular assignments and a final dissertation, with no exams.
All taught lectures are delivered on 15 weekends spread throughout the 2 year period, with approximately 24 hours of taught content per module. You will be expected to invest equal time on self-directed learning and reading.
Our MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies is a truly blended learning programme, offering extensive student support in and outside of the classroom. We have a dedicated delegate support team based in London to assist you throughout your programme and arrange one-to-one sessions with our experienced faculty.
