Course summary

Computers and mobile devices are at the heart of modern life. Web developers use their expertise to design and implement innovative software applications to enhance the way we live both today and tomorrow.

Course Overview

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 to transfer across pathways in your first year of study.

During your second year, you will study modules that provide a greater depth for your chosen programme. In the final year, you will undertake a major project which provides a focus for your studies.

The programme has been designed specifically to provide students with the skills required to work with the latest technologies and apply current concepts in areas as diverse as social media, Internet development and e-commerce.

Graduates will develop skills which include: web design, server-side programming, client-side scripting and database development. Along with an appreciation of the important concepts of software design, usability and database administration.

Assessment

The School of Applied Computing aims to produce graduates that help shape the future of software engineering. 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 course work set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by written report and presentation.

Students are encouraged to use our links with Software Alliance Wales and Go Wales to work on commercial schemes for their Major Project module. Go Wales provides the opportunity of paid work placements with local businesses.

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 from this course have gained employment in the field of web design, web development and similar computing disciplines.
