MScWeb and Mobile Application Development

Why choose this course?

There has been a huge year on year growth in the IT sector and in particular in the area of the web and mobile devices. This has led to a corresponding rise in demand for skilled IT professionals in this area. This area because of its small initial investment costs also enables appropriately skilled professionals to start and grow their own companies

This technology based course is ideal for students who have a degree in Computer Science or a related field. The focus is on the process from design of software through to deployment and a full understanding of the technologies that enable this. As a student you will experience a combination of structured learning with problem-based scenarios and research that will develop your capabilities for critical thinking, argument, creativity and encourage your innovation all of which are brought into the practical decision making processes encountered in this fast moving area.

Emphasis in this course is on obtaining real world professional practice skills, with a large amount of the course being undertaken in workshops utilising real world tools. Theoretical knowledge will be underpinned through case studies, lectures and seminars. Learning will be encouraged through the use of practical assignments and the underlying aim is to turn you into a professional who not only understands the theory of this technical area, but has real life and up to date practical skills and experience.

What happens on the course?

The course has a main thrust in the areas of Web design and technologies, Mobile technologies and App development. Alongside these subjects you will study topics that develop the high level academic skills required at postgraduate level, and there is an opportunity to work with an industrial partner on a mini project.

At the end of this course you, the student, will be able to:

Conduct research into advanced areas of Mobile and Web technologies; apply and extend an understanding of the nature of research and development; demonstrate the professional skills required to produce a high-quality deliverable and communicate results clearly through appropriate media.

Demonstrate expertise in development of mobile apps; apply well-chosen techniques and methodologies to generate sophisticated solutions through team work;

Apply appropriate tools and advanced techniques to develop sophisticated web sites and Internet applications;

Demonstrate a critical understanding of the concepts and technologies underpinning modern web and mobile platforms, and have the ability to supply flexible solutions to the changing technological landscape.

Career path

In 2014 the EU released a report entitled "Sizing the EU App Economy" stating that currently the app market employs 1 million developers and grosses 17.5 Billion Euros and will rise in 2018 to 2.7 million and 63 Billion respectively. The EU developers raise 43% of the global revenue for consumer apps, and a challenge to this is the serious skills shortage. Indeed.com identified that the top UK IT job shortage was HTML5 programmers, and Mobile app developers come in at number 5.
