Web technologies are now central to most modern organisations. This degree addresses employer demand for graduates with the specialist technical skills and understanding needed to develop and maintain today’s websites and web applications. Modern websites, as well as applications, are interactive and dynamic. This course is rooted in computer science and software engineering principles, and will prepare you for a career developing advanced websites with key frameworks and technologies that cover both back-end and front-end programming. Career opportunities for a web technologies graduate include web development with large and global IT companies as well as smaller web design studios, individual entrepreneurship, and any company with a significant web presence. Features and benefits of the course: - Accreditation is currently being sought by the British Computing Society, the chartered professional body for IT and will be retrospectively applied once successful accreditation has been achieved. This will allows you to gain Chartered IT Professional status and become a graduate member of the BCS. - You will study a curriculum designed in conjunction with industry to equip you with the range of skills and strengths that employers demand. - The four year sandwich route gives you the opportunity to spend your third year on industrial placement boosting your employment prospects on graduation. - You will experience what it's like to work as part of a professional team finding solutions to complex problems via group projects. You can also get involved with extracurricular work to further apply your skills, for example, gaming events and the student computing society. - Many of our computing degrees share a common first year allowing you to transfer between courses after Year 1, as you develop your areas of interest. - We recently invested £300k in hardware upgrades across the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Our excellent facilities include ten new state-of-the-art teaching laboratories equipped with high-specification PCs and Apple Macs with high performance systems and specialist software tools which work on Windows, Linux and Mac OS. - Teaching and research laboratories have advanced graphics workstations, clusters of graphical processing units and NEC SX61 and SX8 vector supercomputers. Our usability lab captures and analyses human behaviour as we interact with digital content.
