Months of entry
This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering an additional 6 month placement opportunity, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.
Today organisation’s critical work systems are linked to the information technology (IT) that supports them. The growth of the internet and mobile industries as IT environments for commercial transaction and information exchange has placed additional burdens on IT teams in organisations, requiring that developers be aware both of the infrastructure of the internet/mobile networks and the enabling web/mobile technologies.
The deployment of software systems on intranets and the internet is now of significant demand in the computing field and developers and IT managers must have the higher skills to deliver complete, robust hardware and software solutions for these environments.
This perspective reflects the view adopted by employers in the IT industry who seek to recruit people that have the required technical competence in the field of applied IT.
Students studying this course will also be provided with access to the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) resources during their studies with us.
The course has been designed to equip computing graduates and professionals with the advanced knowledge and skills to analyse, model, design, develop, implement and evaluate computer-based systems in a wide range of application environments.
