Computer Science (Network Engineering)

This programme is designed for individuals wishing to pursue careers as Computer Science professionals with a specialist endorsement in Network Engineering. It involves networking, software development technologies and architectures for the design and management of modern distributed computer systems and networks. The emphasis is on a software engineering approach based on sound modern software engineering project management methods, tools and techniques, which enable an integrated lifecycle systems development view. The programme aims to provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding required to allow them to contribute to the planning, design and management of modern network based computer systems. Students will gain the understanding of critical evaluation of existing technology options, future developments, protocols, architecture and tools needed to support the development and delivery of advanced network services. Upon successful completion of this Master's programme graduates are expected to be proficient in the development of new enterprise distributed and/or web-enabled systems, the integration of legacy systems into intranets or extranets, and advanced data and telecommunication technologies. Through our short course centre, opportunity may also be provided to study for the following professional qualifications: CISCO Certified Network Associate; Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessment. **Professional Recognition** All students on the programme are automatically enrolled as student members of the British Computer Society, the chartered body responsible for establishing and maintaining standards in the profession. The programme has two intakes: September start and January start.

Entry requirements

MSc: Applicants should have: • A good first degree in computing- related subject • OR in a suitable numerate subject (such as mathematics, physics, engineering, information systems or multimedia) that includes software development experience. For applicants without English as their first language, an IELTS score of 6.0 with at least 5.5 in each component (or equivalent) will also be required.

Course modules

**Full-time:** Full Year: MSc Project - 60 credits Term 1 Compulsory Modules: * Enterprise Software Engineering Development - 15 credits * Clouds, Grids and Virtualisation - 15 credits * Network and Internet Technologies and Design- 15 credits * Cyber Security - 15 credits * Essential Professional and Academic Skills for Masters Students - 0 credits Term 2 Compulsory Modules: * Programming Enterprise Components - 15 credits * Systems Development Management and Governance - 15 credits * Wireless and Mobile Technologies - 15 credit * Network Architectures and Services - 15 credits **Part-time:** Part-time students have minimum 2 years (and maximum 6 years) of study and need to complete the same 8 (15 credit) modules and MSc Project as a full-time students.

Assessment methods

Intellectual skills are assessed by formal examinations as well as the coursework and as the final outcomes of the project. Intellectual skills and subject practical skills will be assessed in tutorial exercises and log books of laboratory sessions. In addition there will be coursework assignments that will allow the students to integrate the skills they have acquired; some examinations are used where appropriate. Students will be required to assess and report on the success of their solutions. The project will be a major 'show case' of student's acquired abilities and skills.
