Students on this programme will learn database design, creation, administration and the development of programs for the development of data driven applications. 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 course focuses on designing, implementing, testing and maintenance of high quality information systems and data driven applications. You will focus on acquiring and using the expertise required by a information systems developer and programmer to create solutions to large and complex problems. The expertise and skills you develop from engineering software solutions as part of a team is highly regarded by employers.
