You will undertake a 20 credit point Research Methods module at the beginning of this course. It is designed to develop knowledge, skills and experience that will provide you with a firm foundation for your main research work. You will have the opportunity to study two further 20 credit point modules in order to develop specific technical knowledge related to your research project. These can be selected from the full range of modules delivered on the taught Masters programmes in the School. A further 120 credit points will come from your research projects. Modules available include:
-3D Games Algorithms
-Advanced Software Engineering
-Business Operations and Simulation
-Enterprise Computing and Systems Management
-Entrepreneurial Leadership and Games Prototyping
-Global Business Management
-Internet Development and Programming
-Multimedia Applications and Computer Aided Learning
-Software Engineering and Application Design
-Software Project Management
-Wireless Communications and Mobile Networking
This course has been developed to provide a research-based degree which is well balanced and provides complementary taught as well as research components. As a major part of this course, you will undertake a research project which will be based around one of our well-respected and pioneering research groups. We currently have active groups in the following areas of electronic systems:
-Optoelectronics and Displays
The research activity tends to be of a practical nature and relates to the School’s strong industrial links.
How do you study?
This MRes course can be studied full-time (part-time options are available, please contact us for details). The taught modules are delivered by a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials. The Research Project will involve the design, implementation and reporting of a major research task.
The MRes offers two main opportunities. Firstly, by developing significant expertise in a specific area of study, you will differentiate yourself from other applicants in the same field. Alternatively, if you wish to continue your research as a career, this qualification is an ideal basis for further study leading to a PhD. If you continue your studies at Nottingham Trent University, work originally undertaken for an MRes may be put towards building a research portfolio leading to a PhD.
