Course summary

About the course

Just about every business and organisation has a web presence. And many of them are looking to expand that presence and use the latest technology such as cloud computing, touch technology or eCommerce mobile apps. There is a huge demand for skilled graduates who understand the technology and can help organisations serve their customers better and stand out from the competition.

If you can keep pace with new technology, for example, cloud computing, touch, gesture and motion-based technology, as well as mobile and tablet apps, and you know how they can be used to:

  • Inform
  • Educate
  • Market
  • Sell
  • Innovate

Then you could be an attractive prospect for an employer. This course aims to provide you with the skills to help organisations harness current technology. We’ll look at making applications for web, desktop, mobiles, kiosks and projections. You’ll study the principles of creating large web-based environments, and accessing data, as well as enhancing cyber security and visualising data.

To help you develop your capabilities, we’ll look at a range of computing languages. The most common ones we use are JavaScript, PHP and ASP.NET, and we’ll also cover innovative frameworks such as Bootstrap and Laravel, as well as taking an indepth look at cyber security, database design, data access and its visualisation.

During your studies you’ll be given the chance to take a placement after your second year. It’s an excellent opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice. You can take advantage of our links within the industry to help find a placement that suits you. You could end up anywhere from a globally recognised brand to a small, local company. Gaining real-world experience could make all the difference when you graduate and start looking for a job.

You are encouraged to explore and experiment with new technology and novel concepts. When you graduate you may end up working for a company who specifically wants you for a skill or product you developed in your final year project, or you may decide to take it to market and become an entrepreneur. To be successful on the course you will need a strong interest in the technical side of web/app development and connecting with a variety of data streams.

There's also the opportunity for you to start your own small business through our Enterprise Placement Year scheme. You might like to hear what Dan has to say about studying Web Programming BSc(Hons) formerly Web Technologies.
