Course Overview

What distinguishes this course from others? Data analysis, cloud-based technologies, object-oriented programming (Java), and website coding and publishing are among the in-demand skills covered in BSc (Hons) Computing study (HTML, CSS). The training also gives you a choice between two professional paths. Students with an interest in technical careers have the chance to develop in-depth knowledge of data mining, analysis, and programming skills. Alternatively, if you decide to pursue a management career in information technology, you can enrol in courses that will equip you with both technical expertise and managerial strategy.

Additionally, your learning activities to lay a foundation for continuing skill development throughout your career. For example, learning programming and coding in a way that will enable you to pick up future developments in technical fields like they're nothing new will be one of these foundational learning activities. You will therefore graduate with the lifelong, specialized knowledge and abilities that employers in the computing industry value the most, regardless of the course you take.
