Course summary

This course is designed to prepare you for a variety of careers across the IT industry. It aims to equip you with practical and professional abilities in specific areas, as well as providing a broad range of analysis, design and implementation skills.

Ongoing consultation with employers ensures the industrial relevance of the programme and provides preparation for a range of career paths. An integral part of the programme is appropriate work based learning and in Year 2 full-time students will undertake a supervised work placement of approximately 14 weeks.

The taught modules are delivered by experienced lecturing staff. You will normally have classes for 17 hours per week comprising lectures and practical sessions. In addition, you will be expected to undertake independent study of approximately at least 20 hours per week.


On successful completion of this course, and depending on your final grade, you may progress to year 2 of BSc (Hons) Computing Science or BEng (Hons) Software Engineering at Ulster University. You may also progress to year 2 of the BSc (Hons) Computing Systems (part-time).

In all of these cases, as you have passed your work-based learning module, you will be exempt from the placement year. You can therefore complete an Honours Degree in the same time period as a student enrolled directly on the degree at Ulster University. Alternatively, you will have the opportunity to go straight into employment.
