The overall aim of the course is to provide a broadly-based education in computing systems that will produce graduates equipped to apply best practice in software engineering to the development of a wide range of information systems in organisations. Graduates will be well-prepared to embark on a professional career in computing with specific vocational skills relevant to local industry needs. The course will help meet the industry’s current shortage of high quality graduates in computing, particularly those with software development skills.
This course recognises that software development skills need to be completed with people and process related skills.
Graduates from this course have been successful in gaining full Membership (MBCS) of the British Computer Society, the Chartered Institute for IT.
Response to Covid-19: Our focus is on providing a safe and welcoming learning environment for our students. We have taken every measure, in line with Government guidance, to ensure continued access to learning.
As part of our response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we plan to deliver this course combining face-to-face, on-campus learning, with online learning activities, continuing to follow Government guidance and social distancing measures as required. As restrictions ease, face-to-face opportunities will be increased as appropriate and it is safe for us to do so. Our plans are based on public health advice and robust risk assessments and will be regularly reviewed and updated in that context.
