You’ll be able to customise up to 50% of your programme by choosing elective modules that fit your interests. You can focus your study on the use of intelligent systems within the design of software products, cyber security systems, big data analytics, technology innovation - or combine expertise from all.
Work is completed in a cloud-server platform that mirrors a real-world IT work environment. You’ll be able to access some of the most current tools used in advanced computation via a cloud environment that many organisations are already using. Through completion of practical assignments, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your solution-based skills and develop a Professional Portfolio of Evidence.
This degree has been accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by BCS. An accredited degree entitles you to professional membership of BCS, which is an important part of the criteria for achieving Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status through the Institute. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
Showcase your technical skills and knowledge by developing a cloud-based collection of your work. This portfolio of solution-based artefacts can be presented to employers and peers to demonstrate your critical thinking and practical skills.
Our innovative online study environment mirrors a real-life professional computing environment. This allows you to access different software platforms, conduct simulations, and perform practical tasks in one of the largest and commercially used cloud-servers on the market.
As a student of the University, you can access a Global Career Advisor Network that puts you in touch with global professionals and industry insiders. Advisors can provide you with invaluable insights to help you to move ahead professionally, redirect your career or start a new business venture.
University of Liverpool Podcast
As autonomous machines spread into more and more facets of modern life, Dr Louise Dennis - a researcher at the University’s Autonomy and Verification Laboratory - examines the moral choices self-driving cars will face. She explains why moral reasoning will need to be a critical part of their design.
