  • Course description
    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 is a four year programme and involves you undertaking a one year work placement in industry between the second and third years of your study at Manchester.  Besides the money that you earn during this year, you also gain practical experience that can be invaluable both in your final year project and when competing for graduate jobs.  Students with industrial experience not only tend to improve their final degree performance but also tend to develop clearer ideas about their future career path.
    Special features
    -Opportunity to obtain relevant industrial/business experience as part of the degree programme.
    -Individual or group projects form part of every year of the programme, enabling techniques to be demonstrated in practice, and providing valuable transferable skills in time management and group working.
