Course summary

Applied Computing covers a wide range of computing topics whilst still delivering the core essential computing modules.

This programme is designed to give the student the most flexibility in choosing modules that meet their own personal goals.

This approach gives students a greater opportunity to develop skills most closely aligned to their own industrial experience and needs.

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.

Career Opportunities

Our graduates have excellent employment prospects in the computing, teaching, lecturing and ICT industry, as well as in other areas of the economy. Recent statistics show that the vast majority are following their chosen career paths within six months of graduating.

Graduates would seek positions in application development, business systems analysis, database development and administration, information systems consultancy and management, etc.
