Computer Science (Mobile Computing)

Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are part of everyday life, essential in every aspect of personal, social and business computing. Our MSc will give you a firm understanding of the latest techniques for developing software for mobile devices, and teach you how to integrate such software into larger-scale distributed computing systems. You will study the architecture and implementation of mobile connected systems, the component-based environments used to create them, and the security and operational constraints associated with mobile devices. By the end of the course, you will have the necessary skills to create mobile software applications for industry-standard mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Windows). We also give you experience of the latest technologies and commercial perspectives, equipping you to innovate the next generation of connected mobile systems. A key feature of this course is its unique blend of academic and commercial perspectives. The course begins each September and lasts 12 months. There are two trimesters of taught modules, followed by an individual dissertation project during the third trimester. There is an option to take an extra trimester immediately before or after the dissertation, gaining industrial experience through a module based in SEED, our software development unit working with commercial clients and software. This is unique to Hull. Studying Computer Science at Hull, you'll benefit from an excellent experience for students, with a supportive student community. We have an international reputation for our research activities, with a strong record of industrial and public grant funding. We are also affiliated with Microsoft's DreamSpark programme, which allows you to access the latest Microsoft operating systems and development software for home use. Once registered with the department, you can download the software free of charge.
