Course Overview

The enormous growth of the Internet, the proliferation of computer networks, programmable devices and information systems in various forms and the highly accelerated rate of change ensures a continuing requirement for employees with contemporary computing related skills and qualifications.

The Internet, in particular, is a major technological revolution that is having and will continue to have an enormous impact on society. The radical, transformational change that has been observed in the arena of computing and organisations’ dependence on technology for competitive advantage are compelling reasons to incorporate new ideas, paradigms and technologies into computing related programmes.

In the first year, you will study a broad range of subjects common to several courses within the Computing Portfolio. These provide the underpinning required for later years and allow flexibility in choosing modules that meet student’s own personal goals. This approach gives a greater opportunity to develop skills most closely aligned to the student’s own industrial experience and needs. In the final year, you will undertake a major project which provides a focus for your studies.

Assessment

The School of Applied Computing aims to produce graduates that help shape the future of computing and information systems development. The course content is contemporary and shaped for employability through close links with local and national employers.

Students are assessed through a combination of worksheets, practicals, presentations, projects and examinations. Module assessment is often by assignment, or assignment and examination. The final mark for some modules may include one or more pieces of coursework set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by written report and presentation.
