M.Sc. in Computer Science
(Networks and Distributed Systems)
postgradireland Postgraduate Course of the Year 2011 in the IT category
Welcome to our site describing the MSc in Computer Science (Networks and Distributed Systems), which is run at the
School of Computer Science & Statistics in Trinity College Dublin. You will find all the information you need relating
to the course.
More and more applications are being designed to run on large-scale networks of co-operating computers. The consolidation of the global Internet, the emergence of cloud computing, new technologies for high bandwidth and wireless data communications, and the availability of ever cheaper and more powerful computers are enabling a new generation of distributed applications to be built. Such applications pervade industry, commerce, health, education and, indeed, personal lives as the integration of computer technology and digital communications continues. There are few aspects of life that are not enhanced by networked, distributed systems, but that also must be tempered by security and energy sustainability concerns.
The primary goal of the M.Sc. in Computer Science (Networks and Distributed Systems) is to equip graduate students with an integrated set of skills that will allow them to develop their professional careers, as researchers, innovators, entrepreneurs, architects and consultants, in this exciting and constantly-changing field.
