Mobile devices are now used worldwide – due mainly to the vast range of software that makes portable devices essential accessories in the information age.
It’s a trend which has seen a growing demand for professionals who not only understand the design and development of mobile software apps, but also appreciate how they can be integrated into business environments to achieve competitive advantage and operational efficiency.
To meet this demand, our MSc delivers in-depth knowledge of techniques; technologies and tools; latest standards of mobile software development; and interface design and integration. It also focuses on the exploitation of mobile devices in corporate and commercial networks and in particular their role in emerging network architectures.
You’ll cover iOS and Android development, interface design principles, emerging computer network architectures, and security. You’ll also have the opportunity to research exciting areas of mobile technologies, tools and techniques and to disseminate your own findings and developments.
The course culminates in a development project incorporating what you have learned during your studies. Focusing on your chosen specialisation of mobile software design, development, entrepreneurship or distribution, the project will give you a challenging opportunity to produce innovative software.
Having decided on the theme, you will produce a masters level project with the support of your supervisor who will provide you with all the academic advice you need. You will study in our computing suite which is equipped with both Apple MacBook Pros and PCs to industry standard.
