Applied Computing covers a wide range of computing topics whilst still delivering the core essential computing modules. It is designed to give the student the most flexibility in choosing modules that meet their own personal goals. This approach gives students greater opportunity to develop skills most closely aligned to their own industrial experience and needs. The enormous growth of the Internet, the proliferation of computer networks, programmable devices and information systems in various forms, and the highly accelerated rate of change ensures a continuing requirement for employees with contemporary computing related skills and qualifications. The Internet, in particular, is a major technological revolution that is having and will continue to have an enormous impact in society. The radical, transformational change that has been observed in the arena of computing, and organisations’ dependence on technology for competitive advantage are compelling reasons to incorporate new ideas, paradigms and technologies into computing related programmes. The expertise and skills you develop over the programme of study are highly regarded by employers.
