  • Objectives
    The presence of software applications as components of many different kinds of systems with dynamic configurations is increasing at an unprecedented pace. The focus of this MSc is on new methods, architectures and design techniques for software systems that are able to operate, with guaranteed levels of quality of service, across heterogeneous and distributed platforms.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements Normally at least a good second class honours BSc degree or qualification of equivalent standard recognised by the University in a subject with a substantial element of Computing. Applications are treated on an individual basis, however, and so alternative qualifications may be considered, especially in the case of candidates with relevant work experience

    Teaching and assessment methods

    Teaching is by a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, selfpaced learning and practicals. Assessment of taught modules is by coursework and examination. Coursework consists of a mixture of computer-based practicals, essays and small group projects. The compulsory Personal and Group Skills module combines attendance of seminars, group discussions and collective essay writing on topics selected for the seminars, as well as attendance at a series of workshops on transferable skills and career planning. The project is assessed separately
