Our MEng in Computer Science with Distributed Systems and Networks includes the core learning of the BSc Computer Science and MEng Computer Science programmes to give you a thorough grounding in the field. You then have the opportunity to specialise and gain a greater understanding of the practical industrial applications of distributed systems and networks. You will also have the chance to undertake individual research projects.
Major employers worldwide are keen to employ our graduates – in system development, information technology and communications in the IT sector, and in the finance, service, communications and entertainment industries.
We have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub website and run an annual careers fair.
