Computing, communication & information systems


Students will be equipped to enter a variety of cyber security graduate roles including software developer, information systems engineer and application analyst. The core of your third year focuses on distributed systems and advanced routing and switching concepts; building on the foundation of the first two years. You will develop an appreciation of the legal, ethical and regulatory frameworks focusing on developing your core employability skills. The Computing Project module helps you to develop specialist skills and expertise through the undertaking of a substantial body of work. System software is any software that assists with the running or management of the computer system. This can include operating systems, security software and file management software.

Prospective students will be asked to submit an application highlighting areas of consideration such as academic excellence and financial need. The University of Glasgow offers a 25% discount to all successful CONICyT scholars who enrol at the University of Glasgow to complete a postgraduate programme. Commonwealth Scholarships are available each year to fund Commonwealth citizens’ study in the UK for undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications. A range of scholarship schemes are available for citizens of Commonwealth countries other than the UK.

This module aims to provide students with an understanding of the fundamental components of a typical computer system, and how they collaborate to execute software programs. The module provides a compressive overview from the lowest level of abstractions in hardware to the highest level of abstractions of modern programming languages. For example, they will see logic circuits, machine language, programming language implementations, high-level languages, and applications.
