This one year programme will build on the learning you have undertaken while studying a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Computing. It has been approved by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) and is a Higher Technical Qualification (HTQ), which has been approved as meeting occupational standards. You will have the opportunity to focus on one of the following three specialised study areas: Software Engineering, Network Engineering or Data analytics
You will choose one of the following specialist study areas: Software Engineering – including units such as data structures and algorithms, applied programming and design principles, discrete maths, applied cryptography, information security management and forensic. Network Engineering – including units such as transport network design, cloud computing and network security. Data analytics – including a computing research project, business process support, advanced programming for data analysis, machine learning, big data analytics and visualisations, systems analysis and e-commerce.
You will be taught through lectures, practical sessions and independent learning. We foster a culture of independent learning and decision making that will develop your problem solving and analytical skills. You will complete project-based assessments which will combine several units to give you an employment-based assessment. The teaching will reflect the project approach and will include aspects of teamworking.
