    The Harrow School of Computer Science in London’s University of Westminster is in an unique position of possessing expertise in the fields of Internet Development, Networking, IT Security and Information Systems – the very fields involved in the technical undertaking of any Internet or E-Commerce activity. This course brings together this expertise to provide the industry with the skilled workforce required for implementing, maintaining and advancing Electronic Services.

    The MSc in Electronic Commerce has accreditation by the British Computer Society.

    The course can be completed in full-time mode in twelve months or in part-time mode in a period two to five years.

    Teaching and Assessment
    The course consists of three core taught modules and a project, plus a choice of four options (from seven course options). Two options can be approved free choice modules taken from another course.

    Core modules:
    - Issues in Electronic Commerce
    - Internet Information Management
    - Research Methods and Transferable Skills
    - Project

    Options, choose four from:
    - Commercial Website Design
    - Internet Programming with Java

    - Internet Networking
    - E-Commerce Support Tools
    - Multimedia Technologies
    - Database Systems
    - Free choice modules

    This course is timetabled in block-mode with each module lasting five weeks. All the formal teaching is concentrated into the first week, followed by four weeks of self-managed academic activity. Providing a programme of one-week modules allows students who are combining an MSc course with a career to attend on a week-release basis, rather than on the same days every week.

    Part-time block mode students follow the same pattern of study as full-time students but typically take three or four modules per year, spreading their study over two years. Full-time block mode students take seven modules and their project over twelve months.
