You will also gain an understanding of the professional skills required to lead IT managers by working as a part of a team on a business change project.
You will have the option of learning about new and emerging technologies, such as cloud computing, that are radically changing the opportunities and threats for the provision of IT systems.

You also have the option of learning the knowledge and skills required to create interactive visualisations and explanations of data.
On successful completion of the taught phase you will move to the dissertation phase. This provides the opportunity of developing your research skills and applying technical and management concepts and techniques to solve a complex computing problem.
This one-year course offers a balanced combination of theory and practice, and can serve either as preparation for a career as an IT professional, doctoral research, or as a self-contained advanced qualification in its own right.
