    Programme description

    One year full-time, two years part-time by distance learning

    The growth of the Internet has led to the emergence of new industries, services, and products that were unimaginable only a few years ago. With this growth has come the need for employees with the special skills required to build and deploy industrial-strength Internet computing systems. They are currently in very short supply.

    The Internet Computing pathway is designed to equip you with the skills needed to succeed in the Internet computing industry. The Internet Computing pathway is intended both for graduates in a related discipline, who wish to enhance and specialise their skills in the area, and also for industrialists with some experience of working in the information technology or telecommunications sectors, who wish to obtain a formal qualification.

    Upon completing, you will have gained advanced skills in the application and underlying theory of Internet Computing technologies. Taught modules include the basic principles of digital networks, through modules that describe the software technologies that drive the Internet, to modules that describe research-level technologies, techniques, and services. This will give you a thorough understanding of the subject, with a specialised knowledge of a chosen sub-field based on your project.
