About Computer Science HNC (SCQF level 7), HNC - at City of Glasgow College

The HNC 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. The course places particular emphasis on software development, data science, project management and soft skills such as team-working.

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.
