University of Roehampton, London Online Offers MPH Focused on Global Public Health Skills

New online Master of Public Health programme features interdisciplinary approach

LONDON, March 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Increasing global public health challenges are creating the need for a new international community of professionals and practitioners who can plan, lead and implement effective public health solutions. To help prepare professionals to tackle rising and complex health issues, the University of Roehampton, London Online's new Master of Public Health (MPH) programme features an interdisciplinary approach that enables students to learn from one another and collaborate across geographic regions and disciplines to address health challenges.

The new MPH, Roehampton Online's first health programme, offers online collaboration with a diverse, global student population and expert faculty. Students have the opportunity to combine their professional experience with the public health knowledge gained in the programme to prepare them for imminent changes in the industry.

"Roehampton's online MPH is anchored by a critical awareness that public health challenges are no longer local or national, but global. They are also political, and intimately related to environment and global security," Raymond Lee, Ph.D., a professor of biomechanics at the University of Roehampton who helped develop the online MPH. "The online format of the programme allows students to connect with public health practitioners in other countries and regions, providing them with a global perspective and access to international expertise from a diverse range of disciplines, which won't be available in a traditional classroom."

The MPH programme is designed for professionals and practitioners already working in specific areas relating to public health who are looking to advance their skills and knowledge in the field, as well as those looking to transition to a career in public health. Students may come from a wide range of backgrounds, including healthcare, education, business, government and nonprofit organisations. Together, they learn from the diverse experience within the global classroom while developing an international professional network outside of the classroom.

The MPH joins a growing portfolio of online masters programmes at Roehampton Online, including a Master of Business Administration (MBA), MSc in Project Management, MSc in Information Systems Management, MSc in Strategic Human Resource Management and MSc in Strategic Supply Chain Management, each at an all-inclusive tuition fee of US$10,000. Roehampton Online also recognises relevant work experience in place of a higher degree, such as a bachelor's degree, as an alternative route to admission.

Through these programmes, adult learners around the world gain the critical-thinking skills and practical knowledge they need to expand their expertise and potentially advance their careers. In a collaborative online environment that fosters learning, students engage with a diverse global community through blogs, message boards and chat groups.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality. Experts estimate that internet connected cars will grow to 152 million, while over 100 million internet connected wireless light bulbs and lamps will be operational by 2020.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration.
