Detailed course guide
Full-time students take four courses in Semester 1 and a further four in Semester 2. Results from these examinations determine whether students progress to an individual project and dissertation of four months’ duration leading to the MSc degree.
On this programme, the following taught courses are mandatory:
- Information Systems Methodologies
- Research Methods and Project Planning
- Digital and Knowledge Economy
- Masters Project and Dissertation
Students can then choose five courses from the following:
- Strategic Project Management
- Database and Information Systems
- Network Applications
- Project Management
- Software Engineering Foundations
- Statistical Model and Analysis
- Competitive Strategy
- Big Data Management
In addition to these taught courses, students pursuing the Masters qualification undertake a research project and dissertation.
For MSc entry, a good relevant Honours degree (first or second class) or equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered. Given the clear practical element of the programmes, we will also consider non-graduate candidates holding less than a good Honours degree, or its equivalent, but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exams and course work are at MSc level.
