Technology is one of the greatest agents of change in the modern world and it represents a significant opportunity and risk for businesses of all sizes. Developers play a central role in how we interact with the online world and employment in the IT industry is expected to grow at nearly 5 times the UK average over the next decade (CIO, 2015).
The demands of our global, data-intensive, knowledge based economy is creating a skills gap and making now the perfect time to gain the skills necessary to meet demand.
Northumbria University’s part-time MSc Web and Mobile Development Technologies provides a firm grounding in strategic web development skills, with a specific focus on mobile development. This programme also includes a module on the Internet of Things providing students with the required skills to help them join any industry investing in this multi-billion dollar sector.
Blending hands on training with academic rigour, our programme will enable you to develop the lifelong skills needed to rise to the challenge and opportunity of emerging technologies and engage in the ‘bleeding edge’ field. An area which is notoriously high risk and has an increased potential of unreliability.
Alongside the Internet of Things, you will study the core skills required to gain a deep understanding of contemporary web development, industry practice and analysis which forms the basis of next generation technologies. This programme also focuses on mobile development and web development skills you need to engage and succeed in the cutting edge of technology.
During the programme you will also develop independent research skills to manage risk and identify, recommend and deploy relevant technologies both now and in the future. Throughout the course, you will study with a diverse group like-minded IT professionals, share ideas, and build upon your professional network.
The part-time programme is designed to enable working professionals to fit their study around their work and personal life. The programme is assessed through modular assignments and a final dissertation, with no exams.
