Comments about Computer Systems and Networking, MSc - At the institution - Greenwich - Greater London
This programme covers advanced networking, software development technologies and architectures for design and management of distributed computer systems and networks aims to provide graduates with the deep knowledge, skills and understanding required to allow them to contribute to the planning, design and management of modern network based computer systems. Students will gain the understanding of current technologies and architectures necessary for the network and communications infrastructure of enterprise computer systems. Students are also expected to gain the necessary skills to develop and design modern distributed software systems using appropriate technologies, architectures and techniques (e.g. distributed component technologies, web applications technologies, web-enabled distributed databases, e-commerce, data warehousing and data mining) and to understand the advanced network technologies supporting the upper layers, together with their planning, management and security.
Entry Requirements A good first degree in computing, computing science or a numerate subject (such as maths, physics, engineering, information systems, multimedia) which includes some networking/ communications. For candidates with limited knowledge of networking/ communications, preparatory material can be provided. Students with substantial experience in the areas studied may be eligible for exemption based upon Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
