The Master’s programme in IT Product Development offers the highest-quality teaching in an informal learning environment. The teaching is a mix of lectures and classes, with preparatory work in study groups.

Career Opportunities    

The IT Product Development Master’s is multidisciplinary, so it will qualify you to work across a wide range of fields. Graduates of the programme are particularly well qualified to develop IT products, as well as digital and physical interface applications supplemented by web-based services. Previous graduates have gone on to develop media and navigation equipment for motor vehicles, mobile applications, energy and media control equipment for homes, experience and learning installations for museums and attractions, and technology for the health sector. 

About the Degree

In their first year in the programme, students take a number of required courses in the research priority areas of physical and spatial design, IoT/ cloud computing, and augmented reality. These are followed by an innovation project. In the second year, students complete a Master’s thesis. Elective courses give students the scope to specialise in fields including advanced data management, multimodal interaction, interactivity, and computer mediation. 

The Computer Science department has a range of social spaces for getting together with fellow students outside class, and these are an excellent basis for both study-related and social activities. Our new study café is also a great place to get together and work with your study group. The department and our various student associations organise a variety of events and tech talks in collaboration with local and international companies.
