COURSEWORK AND ASSESSMENT
The programme consists of a balance of taught modules and a project making 180 credit points in total. Each module on the course is separately assessed. This could be by either coursework assignments and/or examinations. Assignments can take the form of research reports, systems analysis documentation, or programming exercises, as appropriate for the module. Students will normally take half of the course as taught modules, together with a project equivalent to one half of the course. Every project involves both research and practical work and culminates in a dissertation.
This programme is designed to allow students to update, extend and deepen their knowledge in a flexible course to enhance their career opportunities. The increasing demand for specialists in network security and in network programming means that a graduate of this programme has excellent employment prospects in Computer Networks. Alternatively, graduates are very well equipped for further research in an academic or research & development environment and the mix of research, numerical and problem solving skills are desirable to careers outside of this subject.
A limited number of scholarships for international students may be awarded for the course. Applications for a scholarship are considered on an individual basis and any award is primarily determined by consideration of academic achievement.
Students on all our programmes enjoy 'state-of-the-art' workshops and laboratories equipped with the latest, industry standard technology and benefit from the enhanced facilities provided by a £7 million major refurbishment programme across the School.
