The industry is currently experiencing a skills crisis where the demand for business-oriented, customer focused ICT professionals far exceeds the supply of suitably qualified graduates. The success of ICT systems depends as much on their human and organisation characteristics as upon their technical sophistication.

The knowledge and skills developed by taking this course will allow you to either work directly for a specialist ICT company or any organisation that depends upon ICT for its success.Course StructureYear 1Developing Database Applications Fundamentals of Information Systems Introduction to Application Development Introduction to Authoring Professional Skills and Integrative Project 1 Web AuthoringYear 2Website Development Application Development Professional Issues and Project Management Designing Information Systems for People Integrative Group Project 2 Intermediate AuthoringYear 3 SandwichOptional Supervised Work Placement Year 3 Full-time/Year 4 Sandwich Systems Strategy e-Commerce: Business and Technology Advanced Authoring of Interactive Media Individual Project One option moduleTeaching and AssessmentYou will learn in a variety of styles, including seminars, tutorials, workshops, presentations and lectures.
