This higher education course is for students looking to pursue a career in the computer science field such as: programming, network engineering, systems analysis, games development, database administration, IT consultancy or project management.
The emphasis is on implementing computing solutions for the modern computing environment e.g. energy, transport, high-tech houses, mobile technology, monitoring & smart sensors, green & sustainability technology to name a few. In the first year you will have one mini-project and one group project. In the second year you will have one/two mini-project/s and a main project. This will enable you to apply the skills that you have developed to complete a practical task of your choice.
