Expand your understanding of information systems and their design and development.
All organisations require information systems to operate efficiently and competitively, so we have developed this programme based on the techniques of developing such computer based application systems.
The course is structured to develop your knowledge of information systems to an advanced level in a relatively short time and provide you with the skills employers require.

Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.
You may find employment in computer departments of organisations as a trainee programmer, software engineer, system builder, analyst or system tester.
Alternatively, you could move into business as a graduate trainee, particularly where a good understanding of information systems, and their potential, is valuable.
This degree and the experience you will gain of creating and commissioning computer solutions can open up new opportunities in your existing area.

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.
You must hold an honours degree, or equivalent, in a discipline other than computing. A lower qualification may be considered if accompanied by appropriate work experience.
