MSc/PgDip Web Applications and Services


Course Description

The evolution of web-based technologies has now led to what is known as 'Web 2.0': a semantically enriched information source with advanced potential to provide specialised software applications 'on the fly'. A plethora of standard PC-based applications is now appearing online (calendar and diary tools, text editors, and spreadsheets, among others) that can be used in a distributed collaborative setting. Developing such applications is particularly challenging, partly due to the wide background required but also the rapid emergence of new technologies. This MSc will equip you with a sound understanding of the area and its emerging trends, while at the same time providing a very hands-on approach to current technologies.

Over the course of this degree, you will develop a deep understanding of the nature and impact of current challenges faced by the IT industry so that you know what is expected from a mature professional. You will also develop an awareness of the methodologies and technologies that are available within computer science to address these challenges, so that you can evaluate and analyse specific situations and make informed choices.

You will have opportunities to develop your interpersonal, communication, decision-making, and problem-solving skills, and to use these skills in an imaginative way.

This MSc course will provide you with the knowledge and research skills to continue your studies at PhD level.
