Comments about BSc Distributed Computing (3 years) - At the institution - Manchester - Greater Manchester

  • Objectives
    The internet, wireless networks and handheld devices have rapidly made distributed computing an everyday part of modern life. Such personalised distributed computing is complemented by the increasingly ubiquitous use of distributed computing within and between commercial organisations. For example, in Enterprise Computing, applications are provided by a network of individual servers, each providing specific services on demand. This programme aims to provide you with a thorough grounding in the nature of distributed computer systems and in the general principles and practice of software development for such systems. The programme provides a background in the network infrastructure underpinning such systems, but the emphasis is on the software that runs on such systems, including middleware for developing distributed applications, and the design and evolving nature of web applications.
