Course content

If you have graduated from a non-computing subject and are looking to enhance your computing skills then this is the course for you.

Develop your skills, knowledge and understanding of computing and the engineering behind computer programs and databases whilst designing, developing, and producing computer software packages.

You will study a range of modules, including software development, database systems, software engineering, and human-computer interaction, allowing you to gain a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Our regular seminars and guest speakers allow you to learn from those working within the industry, increasing your understanding of real life situations you could face in your career.

You will also have access to a range of conventional and specialised equipment and software, such as Windows Azure, Teradata, and Tableau, helping to further develop your skills and understanding.

Under the guidance of our academic staff, you will undertake a development project based on your own interests. Recent projects examples have looked at the estimation of blood vessel widths in images of the human retina and exploring the potential of virtual reality in software design.
