Why Study a Masters at CIM?

Not many problems fit neatly into a single theoretical or methodological approach. Our unique interdisciplinary environment prepares students to respond creatively and critically to the rapidly evolving challenges of a world transformed by digital processes.

How can our wired-up cities be analysed to offer meaningful solutions to real world problems? This course advances your understanding of smart cities, analysis of city-scale data, and the emerging opportunities for big data and interdisciplinary methods to address the world’s urban challenges.

See our Course page.

Digital media is set to dominate twenty-first century culture and society. This course provides a critical and practice-based understanding of cultural software, from the web and social media platforms to mobile apps and the cloud. You will be introduced to techniques and key concepts for actively engaging with these systems, while reflecting on their social, economic and political stakes.

See our Course page.

Governments, business, industry and third sector organisations increasingly require a deep understanding of big data. This course responds to this growing demand for a new generation of postgraduates who can critically engage with big data theoretically, methodologically and practically. This MSc is also available as a Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.
