City College Plymouth has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
There are a small number of large IT organisations in the South West of England, and a few other large businesses making significant use of IT in order to advance their business. In addition to these there is a vibrant and thriving community of IT and Digital SMEs who are working on a national and global scale. Our aim is to equip our graduates with the knowledge to be able to participate in this industry at a local level, either by starting up their own businesses, or contributing to the work of others as desirable and skilled employees. Additionally, if they desire to take their knowledge and skills to other parts of the UK, and around the globe, they will be more than adequately equipped to do so. Students will learn about programming, database development, computer networks, system security and more.
The course includes the following subjects: • computer platforms • project management • analysis and design of software • program concepts • organisational systems security • advanced computer networks • embedded systems and robotics • digital forensics • group research project.
Assessment will be through a mixture of coursework and examinations.
