PgCert Software Project Management, MSc Software Project Management
The Master of Science programme in Software Project Management is designed to engage across industry borders, teaching and exploring software project management skills and issues equally applicable to students who come from a wide range of ICT-intensive backgrounds (such as software development, information, database, and communication management, software portfolio administration, e-technology project management). While there are a wide number of technical courses focusing on ICT available worldwide, we have introduced one of the few programmes specifically focusing on the different aspects of software project management.
The part-time Master of Science programme in Software Project Management aims to cater for both professionals with a degree in a range of disciplines and work experience (as employees, contractors, and consultants in ICT-intensive positions) as well as computer science graduates with focus so far on the technical aspects of software development.
The programme allows students to acquire extensive software project management knowledge and skills, providing excellent opportunities for new career pathways. Students learn entirely online through the University's virtual learning environment with the programme making use of the latest web-based technologies to deliver quality teaching and a professional award whilst not disrupting students' working schedules.
Due to the online learning approach there is no requirement for students to attend the University of Aberdeen. Upon registration, students will be issued with a user id and password to gain access to the material.
International Student Requirements:
In general, applicants are expected to hold a degree in an appropriate subject; however alternative qualifications, combined with experience, may also be considered as a means for entry.
