MRes in Digital Technologies

Institute for Digital Technologies

Students who choose an MRes in Digital Technologies will receive guidance from academics leading research in the fields of internet and multimedia technology. Academics will share their expertise on Internet and Communication Networks and Fundamentals of Multimedia Signals, to enable students to gain specialised knowledge of these fields.

From September 2017, Loughborough University London will be delivering six new multidisciplinary MRes programmes, to enable students with a passion for research to widen their skills, focus their interests and take the next step towards an MPhil, PhD or analytical career.

Studying an MRes with Loughborough University London will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. Each MRes programme has been carefully designed to empower graduates with rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto highlevel researcher positions within their chosen sector or field.

Each programme will explore the research processes, and uncover the designs, practices and methodologies used by experienced researchers from each discipline. Whilst a traditional taught master’s degree programme focuses on the development of expertise in a chosen area, an MRes places more emphasis on the individual to uncover new knowledge and develop their own research expertise.

In addition to a major research project all students studying an MRes programme will complete taught units such as:

  • The Collaborative Research Project

  • Research Design, Practice and Ethics

  • Quantitative Research Methods

  • Foundations in Qualitative Research

Duration

1 year full-time, up to 4 years part-time

Entry qualifications

Minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a wide range of subjects. In exceptional circumstances an applicant may be admitted to the degree who does not possess the requirements mentioned, but who has substantial relevant work experience.

Career prospects

Research skills are greatly in demand across the high value industries of the UK. Alongside the taught elements of the programme you will be able to access a tailor-made professional development programme mapped to the Researcher Framework that will support you to market yourself and your skills for a rewarding career. You will get access to:

  • Exclusive workshops on diverse topics suitable for a research career
  • Mentoring
