Applicants will normally hold a recognised first or second class honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject. We expect that you will have a working knowledge of computers and networks and it is essential that you have practical hands-on experience of at least one programming language.
All International and EU students applying for a course with us must meet the following minimum English language requirements:
Minimum standard – IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent) for study at postgraduate level.
Our postgraduate Computing (Computer Networks Engineering) MSc allows you to study computing at a greater depth, develop your research and analytical skills and complete an individual thesis investigating an area you are particularly interested in.
While this pathway is mostly technical in focus, you will also learn about the business context and develop interpersonal skills that are vital to problem solving in business. You will have the opportunity to work towards professional qualifications to become a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) or Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP).
You will study six modules and complete a dissertation. Some of the optional modules are only offered according to staff availability and student interest.
