Comments about Intelligent Information Systems (MSc) - At the institution - London - Greater London
This is a specialised MSc degree focusing on the areas of computational intelligence and intelligent information systems, which are major research strengths of the School of Computer Science and Information Systems. The degree has been designed to meet the needs of both full-time students wishing to advance their knowledge of intelligent information systems before embarking on a career in IT or on a research degree, and part-time students already working in the IT sector. Students who complete this degree will have gained specialist knowledge, which they will be able to use in analysis of problems arising in intelligent information systems, evaluation and application of technologies, and research into, and development of, new technologies.
Entry requirements A good first degree or MSc in computer science. Joint honours computing graduates may also be eligible, provided they have covered the prerequisite material at the appropriate level.
Intelligent Information Systems (MSc)
This degree consists of eight taught modules and a substantial project. Part-time students follow four taught modules in each of the two years, and undertake the project during the second year.
At least five modules and the project must be taken in the area of intelligent information systems (IIS). Those IIS modules are:
-Computational Intelligence and Visualisation
-Data Warehousing and Data Mining
-Image-Based Information Processing
-Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
A maximum of three modules may be chosen from:
-Advances in Data Management;
-Component-Based Software Development
-Developing Internet Applications
-Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
-World Wide Web Technologies.
Please note: not all of the above modules may be offered each year, although at least five IIS modules will always be offered.
As a student, you will have 24-hour access to several laboratories of networked PCs with a range of language compilers, databases and other application software. The School of Computer Science and Information Systems is connected, via the SuperJANET network, to the computers of other academic institutions in London, elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
The degree has a significant research element, as several of the modules include study and discussion of recent research advances.
