Our programmes are shaped by the principles and discoveries of our current research, and students are encouraged to participate in development projects and industry-focused work experience opportunities where possible.

If you choose an MRes in Digital Technologies, you 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.
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.

Enterprise Through the Curriculum is an intrinsic element of every master’s programme at Loughborough University London and has been carefully designed to give students the best possible chance of securing their dream role.

Future career prospects
Studying an MRes will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. Each MRes programme has been carefully designed to empower you with rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto a PhD. You may also continue into high level researcher positions within your chosen sector or field.
