MSc ICTs for Development will train students to become an information-and-communications-technology-for-development (ICT4D) champion who possesses the necessary technical and contextual skills to lead digital development programmes and projects to completion, such as ICT-enabled enterprise, e-government, m-health, MOOCs, etc. In recent years there has been - and continues to be - a massive expansion in the number of ICT4D projects in developing and transitional economies. This course aims to overcome skills shortage resulting in a high project failure rate and this course satisfies the pressing need for ICT4D champions. A range of optional course units provides an opportunity to satisfy specialist ICT4D champion knowledge and skill requirements, while the overseas field visits that students offer will enable students to build up their real-world experience at no additional cost. The course is designed for those applying, or seeking to apply, digital information and communication technologies in pursuit of socio-economic development goals. It will include those who have, or plan to have direct design and implementation responsibilities, project managerial responsibilities, or broader strategic or policy-related responsibilities.
