Overview

This course is for graduates whose first degree is in a non-computing discipline. The principal areas of focus are programming, networking, hardware and analysis. Your skills in these areas will be developed to a level sufficient for you to apply them in a professional environment.

You may already be employed within an IT environment and would like to gain some formal qualifications to enhance your position.

Whatever your current situation, this course will give you a depth of understanding that will enable you to evaluate alternative solutions to a range of computing challenges. It's about equipping you with a set of skills that are likely to prove attractive to potential employers in a range of sectors.

It will also enable you to evaluate alternative solutions to computing systems problems and to make choices between such solutions. You will be able to assess the work of others, based on mastery of the fundamental principles of the subject.

Many staff involved in computing/IT may not have directly relevant education. Our course provides the opportunity to understand the fundamentals of the subject and its application to today's practice thereby providing more efficient service to their employer. With the breadth of the degree will come greater insight into the potential application of IT within their work place and the ability to more effectively apply new technologies being considered for implementation.

As well as covering programming and software engineering skills, this course offers study in some depth of the following key areas: computer architecture; networks and servers; systems analysis and database design; object-oriented design and programming.

In all of these areas the aim is to equip you with a deep understanding rather than with superficial skills. The intention is that you will have studied the key topics in sufficient depth for your knowledge and understanding gained to be immediately useful in employment, without the need for significant further training.
