The impact of Information Systems on everyday life continually expands at a monumental rate. Computing is increasingly embedded in everything we use from; transport, financial and telecommunications systems to everyday personal items such as toothbrushes and running shoes. The pervasive nature of computing coupled with the ever increasing demand for improved products and services drives the discovery of innovative solutions through the use of information systems. This has led to a critical dependence emerging between computing and practically all industries.
Graduates and engineers who are able to fully exploit the potential that computing and information systems offer within a range industries including, Retail, Manufacturing, Health, and Communications; are highly sought after. If you are looking to further your employment options in your current industry, but have little or no technical experience, then this programme is for you.
* This programme is suited to students from a non-IT background or with little prior technical experience who want to further enhance or or change career focus, to widen employment opportunities in a vast selection of computing related industries and sectors. * Designed for non-IT professionals who want to develop a firm technical foundation in the latest industry relevant programming languages and software development techniqus (agile, which can open up more technical and senior level positions in their current industry. * Guided by academics with an extensive spectrum of industrial experience, the programme introduces you to the core aspects of computing and allows you to choose from a variety of optional specialist modules, such as Mobile Devices and Social Networks, Business Technology Strategy and Graphical User Interface design, developing both your practical and theoretical skills. * The core modules introduce aspects of computing, including a double module in object-oriented programming (using Java) and a double module in information systems. * These core modules are supplemented by optional specialist modules covering a broad range of subjects relevant to the software industry, such as Network Planning, Finance and Management, Entrepreneurship in Information Technology and Decision and Risk. * Your project work will typically involve the design and implementation of a significant piece of software within your chosen specialism. Projects undertaken for external organisations focusing on an industrial or commercial application encouraged. * You will learn about and develop extensive technical knowledge of the latest developments in new languages and tools for web systems (XML, Advanced databases, Semantic web). * This intensive one year programme is aimed at students without a background in Computer Science � it is a conversion course for those who want a career in computing.
