Course summary

**This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.**The development and continued success of business is increasingly predicated on its ability to harness and employ digital and technology solutions to develop and market new products and services, increase productivity and workflow, minimise costs, and protect itself from threats from various forms of cyber crime. At the core of this is an increasing need to manage and maintain large sets of data and this in turn leads to additional security requirements and the application of advanced data analytics that rely heavily on the application of artificial intelligence.Digital technologies are now a fundamental part of all sectors of commerce and industry with computer systems and digital communications technologies providing the backbone for all data gathering, data management, decision making and strategic management processes, systems development, auditing, security and communication in both the public and private sectors. Underpinning this is the continual need to design and develop technological solutions to a broad range of ever evolving problems. This encompasses a range of digital and communications based solutions centred on the acquisition, storage, manipulation, retrieval and dissemination of data. In many cases the solutions will be based around database functionality on the server side and web based user experience on the client side. In recent years these systems have become more complex and at the same time more necessary due to the massive volumes and range of data to be considered, a need for improved security and the introduction of more stringent regulation. The FdSc Digital & Technology Solutions course is designed to provide learners with key underpinning in data modelling, data analytics, network design & network security, software development (with a focus on data driven web based solutions), digital communications and project management/systems methodologies.The course not only provides underpinning theory in each of the core subject areas but will actively encourage continued independent research into more specialised areas such as ’big data’, UX design, artificial intelligence, development frameworks, media distribution and the evolution of legislation relating to data. This in turn will enable the development of specialist skills aligned with students interests and fields of practice. As practitioners students will not only develop academic work but will build a portfolio of developmental work which will help in preparing them for both industry and further academic study at level 6 Honours stage (top-up).
