The Advanced Computing Technologies (Part-Time) programme at Birkbeck, University of London will provide you with the skills to analyse problems in the evaluation and application of technologies, and in research into, and development of, new technologies.
The programme focuses on areas of expertise and research specialisation within the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, and covers state-of-the-art techniques in, for example, the management and analysis of 'big data', software development of information systems in cloud, mobile and web-based architectures, and computational methods for intelligent information management and analysis.
- Significant coverage of emerging technologies and research developments in areas of growing importance in the IT industry.
- You will have 24-hour access to several laboratories of networked PCs with a range of language compilers, database and other application software. We are connected, via the SuperJANET network, to the computers of other academic institutions in London, elsewhere in the UK and abroad.
- The Birkbeck Knowledge Lab draws on multi- and interdisciplinary perspectives and methodologies from across the sciences, social sciences and the arts, to investigate how digital technologies and digital information are transforming our culture and how we learn and work.
- In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), more than 75% of our research outputs in Computer Science were ranked world-leading or internationally excellent.
