Programme description

If a nation is to obtain the maximum benefit from its investments in information technology (IT), a labour pool capable of using IT appropriately is necessary. Individuals who want to realise the potential value of IT in their everyday lives need to be computer fluent able to use IT effectively today. IT is the use of computers and software to manage information.

The MSc Information Technology programme is typically aimed at students with an Honours degree in a non-computing or non-computer engineering discipline. The programme equips graduates with the skills necessary to understand and develop solutions to a wide range of IT problems.

The modules on this programme are paired to provide opportunities to investigate and critically appraise networking and computer technology, software development and database systems, web systems development and user interaction design. Project management, software processes and ethics, security issues and IT life cycle management are also covered.

The MSc is concluded by a three month individual project and is underpinned by the research and consultancy work carried out by the Software Engineering, MUCOM, Multimodal Interaction and Networking and Distributed Systems groups in the School of Engineering and Built Environment.

Career opportunities

Graduates are likely to gain employment developing web and database applications, work in IT project management or return to their original subject specialism enhanced with a thorough grounding in IT.

Assessment

Assessment methods used to demonstrate achievement of learning outcomes include unseen written examinations, Coursework Assignments (Individual and Group-based) and written Class Tests and/or Reports. For the MSc, the Project, the Dissertation and Presentation are all expected as deliverables.
