- Web design and development
- Design dialogues
- Computer systems
- Database systems
- Programming for the web
- Web-enabled business
- Group project
Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.
Previous graduates have found employment in jobs ranging from programmers and web-based programmers in small software houses to graduate trainee programmers in large multinational companies.
This degree and the experience you will gain of creating and commissioning computer solutions may also open up new opportunities in your existing degree or work experience area. Other graduates have moved into academic fields such as research, education and training.
School of Computing
The world of computing offers many different and rewarding career paths for specialists with the appropriate skills. With professional accreditation from the British Computer Society, our wide range of innovative courses is designed to meet industry needs.
Our courses are very practical and give you the necessary skills to join dynamic, hard working IT teams.
At Masters level, you can study anything from one module right up to a full MSc, full or part time. Modules include technologies such as .NET, Cisco, UML, SAP, Java, PHP, Ajax, all studied at Masters level. Choose to study full or part time.
There are also Executive Masters degrees available, including MSc Strategic ICT Leadership, MSc Advanced Security and Cybercrime, MSc Project and Programme Management and MSc Sound Design, where the majority of learning and study takes place at work or draws on your workplace experience. And the GCHQ accredited MSc Advanced Security and Digital Forensics can even be studied via distance learning.
The School of Computing is a member of a number of software alliance schemes which allows us to offer students of the school a large range of free software. Membership currently includes the Microsoft Academic Alliance (MSAA), the VMWare Academic Program (VMAP) and the iPhone Developer University Program. We are one of only two NVIDIA CUDA Teaching Centres in Scotland, a Cisco Academy Support Centre and an Encase Partner. Students benefit through access to the latest hardware, software and expertise.
The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at a 2:2 or above. We look for applicants to have a background in any discipline other than computing in order to be eligible for the programme. Although you are not required to have any formal knowledge of computing before starting the course, it does require you to engage with a wide range of new technologies in a relatively short time, so familiarity with basic computing would be an advantage. We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry.
