What you'll study in Computing and Information Systems MSc at Queen Mary University of London.
You will gain a solid background in computer information systems, beginning with a double module on the topic. You will learn about databases, computer programming, security and authentication and interactive systems design. You can then build on this knowledge with modules covering mobile services and cloud computing, as well as Bayesian decision and risk analysis.
You can choose to specialise in systems or technology strategy, and to consolidate your studies through your final major project, which can be completed in with an industrial partner.
The School has collaborations, partnerships, industrial placement schemes and public engagement programmes with organisations, including Vodafone, Google, IBM, BT, NASA, BBC and Microsoft.
This programme has been accredited on behalf of the Engineering Council and a suffix "EngC Pathway" will be added to the degree title when a student satisfies the accreditation requirements.
