Master of Science Computing (Information Systems Processes)

The MSc in Computing in Information Systems Processes combines the human, the organizational, and the technology to provide a broad perspective of modern information systems and their development. The human aspects of the program explore issues such as human-computer interaction, psychology, computer ethics, and systems development in the human-centered tradition.

The organizational aspects consider successful business processes and how these can be supported through information infrastructures such as supply-chain management systems. Finally, the technological aspects look to trends in information systems development, such as emerging methodologies, software development, and technological systems. The program also includes a research project and dissertation, thus allowing students to investigate an individual area of personal interest.

An applied work-based research project and dissertation may be particularly appropriate for working or part-time students.

The program consists of six taught modules and a dissertation. It can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students undertake three taught modules for each of the first two semesters. They also take support modules on research methods related to their dissertations. Students complete their dissertations over a third semester to complete the MSc program in 12 months.

Part-time students may complete their studies over a longer period. Students who choose not to complete a dissertation can instead complete a Postgraduate Diploma award comprised of the taught modules only.
