Course summary

This course allows you to develop technical and practical skills in a range of computing subjects including computer technology, database design, internet technology, programming, multimedia, interactive systems design and systems development. Delivered at Leicester College, the first two years of study lead to the award of HND after which you can top-up to an undergraduate degree in Computing. Top-up to a BSc degree requires an additional year of full-time study at the De Montfort University campus.The modules on this HND have been very carefully designed to provide a fully integrated course of study. Key skills in English and mathematics, business skills including report writing, group work, planning projects and making presentations are fully contextualised within the academic subject content.The course is especially suitable if you wish to gain a professional qualification without immediately committing to a full term of study, if you are a mature student returning to study, or if you have entry qualifications below those required to start the full degree.Computing HND graduates have gone on to work as computer and systems engineers, database managers and software developers, at companies such as the National Grid, Caterpillar, Bosch, Royal Bank of Scotland and Rolls Royce.
