About Computer Science (Year 2 Direct Entrants) HND (SCQF level 8) at City of Glasgow College

The HND Computing (Science) course is an SQA qualification which aims to meet the challenges of employers seeking qualified learners who can demonstrate knowledge and skills in a range of technology areas.

According to research from Tech Partnership (a network of employers working with the Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland to create skills for the UK's digital economy) the number of UK Digital Businesses has increased 30% in the last 5 years.
Their forecast shows the number of people working in the UK as technology specialists between 2014 and 2024 will grow by 28%, significantly outstripping that predicted for workers more generally.

The course is delivered by experienced lecturing staff many of whom have industry experience in IT areas such as software engineering, programming, project management and technical support.

This HND course places particular emphasis on software development, project management and soft skills such as team-working; with year 2 of the programme further developing skills in object oriented programming and design, data science and mathematics
