Course content

Designed for students looking to pursue business-facing information technology (IT) careers, this course will develop your real-world skills directly applicable to roles such as consultants, analysts, web developers, and project managers.

If you already have professional IT experience, this course will enhance your skills in core areas and build on your existing knowledge, or if you have little or no IT experience it will provide a full grounding in the subject.

The syllabus includes a practical project, typically for an industry client, which puts into practice all of the things learnt on the academic part of the course. Many of the course lecturers and tutors come from industry themselves in order to maximise the relevancy of the modules to potential job opportunities.
