The industry

The UK’s IT industry is worth over £58 billion annually. With employment of IT professionals expected to grow nearly twice as fast as the UK average between now and 2020 (e-skills UK), it looks like demand for well-qualified information technology graduates is set to remain strong.

A postgraduate qualification can put you at the forefront of this demand, demonstrating your commitment to the industry and your ability to carry out in-depth computing research.
Currently there is very high demand for those with technical skills in a wide range of areas with most demand in software development, SQL databases, web scripting and Agile development. Along with this demand, careers in these areas often carry higher than average salaries.

This is echoed in reports and comments from industry:

“As a small software house, dealing with a group of international corporates, we have a regular need for graduates with strong software engineering and database skills. Given that we design systems that link to e-commerce, a good understanding of cyber security engineering is also key. Over the years we have found the pool of graduates with the required technical skills has seriously diminished, so the more technical graduates from Solent University are an important source for us.”
John Noden, Managing Director/Executive Director Technical Design, Zentive

In addition, the CBI (2015) have indicated that the skills gaps in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is affecting employers and have indicated that STEM-qualified graduates are at a real advantage in the jobs market, with four out of ten employers preferring STEM graduates over other graduates.

The programme

Southampton Solent University’s computer engineering master’s conversion degree exposes students to a wide range of both existing and emerging technologies and covers areas such as coding, software development, problem solving, computing, digital and engineering.

Summary

To be competitive in today's knowledge-driven economy, businesses need to manage an ever increasing range of information sources and technologies, develop analytics capabilities to tap into new sources of "big" data, as well as design processes and platforms that enable them to share this newly gained organisational knowledge among employees. Central to all of this are information systems and knowledge management – the means or processes by which people and organisations, utilising technologies, create or gather, process, store, use and disseminate or share management information and organisational knowledge.

This programme introduces students to the effective development, use and management of these systems, and the information and communication technologies (ICTs) that support them. You will also learn to appreciate their strategic applications, and evaluate the implications of technology trends such as social media, cloud computing, business intelligence, big data storage/analytics, etc. for the nature of work and organisational competitive advantage. The MSc emphasises both practice as well as the theories underpinning it, and integrates technological, managerial and social aspects of the subject.

The programme is both suitable for graduates in a more technology-oriented subject (or those with some experience in the IT sector), as well as for recent graduates in general management fields. It provides a strong foundation for those looking to have careers in knowledge and information systems management, or want to carry out research in the discipline.

Learning and teaching

You will learn through a series of teaching and learning activities and assessment methods designed to advance your theoretical grounding in the discipline as well as your ability to function more effectively in a work environment. For example, during the programme, you will present some of your work in class, work together in teams to produce a business proposal, etc.

Modules

E-Business and Human-Computer Interaction; Information Systems Development; Information Systems Management and Strategy; Introduction to Knowledge and Information Systems Management; Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence; Qualitative and Quantitative Research; Problem Structuring; Systems Thinking; Web Applications; Dissertation; plus 1 or 2 relevant optional modules - choose from: Consultancy Skills, Simulation, Credit Scoring and Data Mining, Project Risk Management, Business Ethics, Innovation and Technology Transfer.

Career opportunities

Career opportunities are often related to knowledge management, the management of the IT function or information systems provision within organisations, or IT/digital/web consultancy. Future career paths may for example include roles such as that of IT manager, project lead, business/process analyst, IT/digital consultant, chief knowledge officer or knowledge manager, etc.

The industry

Recent research conducted by the UK government suggests that the costs of cybercrime to the UK could be in the order of £27 billion per year. To combat this, the Government has invested in a National Cyber Security programme which aims to make the UK one of the most secure places in the world to do business in cyberspace.

The cyber security sector has grown to over £17 billion in the UK, employing over 100,000 people. With the increasing importance for organisations to ensure their computer networks are robust against attempted security breaches, this sector is likely to grow, with high demand for skilled cyber security engineers.

A postgraduate qualification can put you at the forefront of this demand, demonstrating your commitment to the industry and your ability to carry out in-depth computing research.
This is echoed from reports and comments from industry-

“As a small software house, dealing with a group of international corporates, we have a regular need for graduates with strong software engineering and database skills.
