Programme information

Students who choose an MRes in Digital Technologies will receive guidance from academics leading research in the fields of data science, Internet, communications, and multimedia technologies. Academics will share their expertise on Internet and Communication Networks and Principles of Data Science, to enable students to gain specialised knowledge of these fields. 

The MRes programme will enable students with a passion for research to widen their skills, focus their interests and take the next step towards a PhD or future career. 

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

The MRes programme will explore the research processes, and uncover the designs, practices and methodologies used by experienced researchers from a range of disciplines. 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
