Core modules
  • Developing Web ApplicationsIn this module we'll study the web-based applications used in the deployment of server-side relational databases and the scripting languages involved.
  • e-Business EngineeringYou'll cover the concepts behind what makes a successful e-business enterprise, including key themes concerning the differentiation of supply chains, integration of selling chains, product procurement, and relationship management.
  • IT InfrastructuresThis module will introduce you to current best practice in the design, deployment and maintenance of an enterprise-wide IT infrastructure. You will cover the design of core IT infrastructures and will deploy network-management software to monitor the performance of the network and associated components.
  • Secure SystemsTraditionally, information security has been poorly understood and rarely integrated into system design. With the growth of high bandwidth internet, eCommerce, eBusiness and Virtual Private Networks, security has become a centre-stage issue. However, organisations and businesses find themselves missing the necessary skills and knowledge, especially of the wider security picture, that is needed to develop effective security strategies. Raise your awareness of the overarching IT security issues faced by business today, and equip yourself with the necessary understanding to fulfil management responsibilities in information security strategies. You’ll examine both conventional and public-key encryption including the use of hash functions, digital signatures and Authentication certificates, as well as web and email security and network security tools such as PGP and certificates such as X.509v3. You’ll look at system level security issues including inherent operating system weaknesses and how these are exploited are examined, and in particular the increasing level of systems complexity is addressed as a source of weakness. You’ll also focus on the sources of attack, the culture of the hacker and the human factors that may undermine the effectiveness of security mechanisms.
  • Research MethodsGain the support and foundations in the research skills for your Master’s level dissertation. You’ll investigate generic research activities, including project management and dissertation preparation. Your topics could include the consideration of suitable content, planning, and the use of project management software.
  • DissertationYou'll chose an independent research topic from an area of expertise within our department (subject to availability of suitable supervision) and will conduct a significant research project in that area which may involve a literature review, data collection, analysis and a write-up.

We’ll assess the application of your technical knowledge through written assignments, software projects, presentations, and a dissertation module.
