In the past twenty years, the web has had a major impact on the way in which we work, live and learn. As the sector continues to grow there is a constant need for individuals and organisations to keep abreast of new developments in the field. This programme has been designed to meet the needs of the global IT industry and will give you the advanced skills and expertise to excel in this fast-paced and competitive marketplace.
This fully online programme offers two specialised exit awards; the pathway you choose will depend on your own specific background and interests:
MSc Web Technologies
If your knowledge and experience of computing are already beyond that of an end-user and you wish to gain enhanced web technologies skills, then this pathway is for you. You will explore cutting-edge technologies and gain a solid grounding in programming and software development.
MSc Web Technologies with Management
This pathway, while primarily having a technological focus, will explore key aspects of business and management particularly relevant in an international environment. You will receive a thorough grounding in core management principles, practices and techniques strongly contextualised to web-based applications.
Both pathways will help you develop and build on your specific technical expertise, and gain practical, analytical, and highly transferable skills sought after by employers.
