Computers are now an essential part of our lives. We use them at work, to organise our social lives and to play games. They are also fundamental to many systems that keep society running smoothly such as hospitals, public transport, governments and banks. Software development involves building programs so that these computers effectively fulfil their purpose. With more technology jobs available in the UK than qualied computing graduates, job prospects for software developers have never been better. Developed by Tech Industry Gold and top graduate employers, this course is designed to give you the technical and business skills you need when you graduate. You will study how software is built from start to finish, covering all the latest technologies including cloud computing, big data and cyber security. You will learn how businesses manage large projects, and develop the professional skills to plan, design and deliver new software on time and within budget. You will also develop the skills to collaborate, negotiate and communicate effectively with colleagues and customers; lead teams and projects; and understand how companies operate profitably.
