Effective information and engineering technologies underpin successful businesses, industries and organisations across all sectors of the UK society.
Over the past few decades information technology has been the catalyst for economic growth. Many industries and organisations have successfully implemented IT applications and gained significant competitive advantage.
In the wider field of engineering, the effective application of science and engineering technologies within a range of sub-disciplines such as construction, electronics and mechatronics is critical to the future of industry, society and the environment.
The computer is now ubiquitous - computers are everywhere that we work, shop, and play. Recent advances in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) have led to the need for professionals with a high level of skills and knowledge not just of the technologies involved but also in their effective deployment.
Based in West London, University of West London postgraduate programmes will build on your generic undergraduate understanding of the theory, practice and applications of computing and information systems. We are sure that studying here will help you develop one or more specialist areas of practice reflecting fields of employment opportunity both in the UK and internationally.
