  • Course description
    The internet, wireless networks and handheld devices have rapidly made distributed computing an everyday part of modern life. Such personalised distributed computing is complemented by the increasingly ubiquitous use of distributed computing within and between commercial organisations. For example, in Enterprise Computing, applications are provided by a network of individual servers, each providing specific services on demand.

    This four-year full-time MEng programme enhances the contents of the equivalent three-year BSc programme by enabling you to study specialised topics to a greater depth and broaden your skills and experience with a period in industry, enterprise related courses, and industrially-focused project work.  The enhancements enable you to develop an in depth specialist knowledge across a range of computing subjects, including some covered by the MSc in Advanced Computer Science.  They also allow you to understand the business skills needed to develop and manage a successful business exploiting computing technology.
