Gain a qualification in Information Technology (IT) and you could work with computer-based technology, integrating communications with computer networks to benefit organisations in the public or private sector.

We aim to give you the knowledge and skills to help organisations identify their IT needs and then design, produce and operate computer-based information systems. During your studies we’ll give you the opportunity to gain a thorough grounding in the principles of IT, including:

  • Developing HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript

  • Developing database-enabled applications, including Visual Studio, ASP.NET and SQL Server

  • Exploring contemporary theory in modelling and interface design

The focus is on giving you the skills to perform in a graduate level information systems position, and prepare you for a career in this dynamic area of computing. We want to give you lots of opportunities to put what you’ve learnt into practice, and we work closely with industry. You could also spend a year on placement, which could really help you develop your experience and your contacts.

British Computer Society (BCS) accreditation is awarded to courses that provide a foundation in computing. This course is partly accredited by the BCS, which means you will have fulfilled some of the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional, Chartered Incorporated Engineer or Registered IT Technician.
