If you’re looking for a career change or simply have an interest in web and software development, our MSc in Web Development will open up a pathway into the IT industry, as it requires no previous undergraduate experience in the field of computing.
This is a blended degree that brings elements of computing and digital media into one single package, ensuring that you are taught the technical skills of software development and delivery, as well as design elements of digital media. You’ll also have the opportunity to take part in our summer work placement module, which means you can gain valuable work experience relevant to your career aspirations.
Additionally, you’ll be taught how to store and retrieve data, as well as learn about the security aspects of IT. By completing our Cybersecurity module, you can become a Certified Ethical Hacker through the EC-Council.
To finish your programme, you will undertake an end of year project based on your own interests in the field which is designed to meet professional requirements.
Our MSc Web Development course follows an active blended learning style, with some lectures replaced by workshops and seminars. This means that you’ll be in a learning environment focused on collaborative learning in the lab spaces in our state-of-the-art media centre, the Sir David Bell Building, and be immersed in an environment that you’ll experience in the IT industry.
You will graduate with an ability to work at the intersection between computing and digital media, and have the skills required in both fields to become an accomplished web or software developer.
