    This programme is specifically designed to provide:

    • Familiarity with a broad range of information technologies and how they are used.
    • An understanding of frameworks and planning techniques for the strategic management of information systems in organisations.
    • The ability to critically evaluate and apply appropriate strategies and techniques to the development of information technologies.

    Degree Level 1

    Students will learn fundamental skills required by every IT professional, and the basic understanding of the underlying computer system through Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, Networking and Databases. The modules will also help them develop personal and organisational skills, as well as nurture creativity and innovation.

    Degree Level 2

    A broader range of skills will be learnt, in which students will gain better understanding of frameworks and planning techniques for the strategic management of information systems, programming languages and techniques, and further analysis and design skills. We will further nurture your creativity and innovation as well as independent learning to prepare you for the workplace.

    Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 16 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.

    Degree Level 3

    You will make use of your previous studies and industrial experience to extend your familiarity in a broad range of information technologies and to refine your personal and professional development. You will enhance your programming skills and move further into the areas of cloud computing and big data. A final year project requires you to investigate and develop a solution to a real-world problem – you will demonstrate your ability to combine technical knowledge, critical thinking and analytical skills to produce a personal achievement portfolio.
