Course Summary

This course aims to enhance the way we use technology in communication, health services, data security and many other related areas. Pioneering research is the lifeblood of the School and is evidenced by REF 2014, in which 100 per cent of the School's research was judged to be internationally excellent or world leading. Our commitment to research has led to the establishment of ECIT and more recently the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), which is the UK's lead university centre for cyber security research. With the research from these centres, and the spin out companies supported by the School, EEECS is in an excellent position to drive and influence the economy at a local, national and international level. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
