Expand your understanding of information systems and their design and development.
All organisations require information systems to operate efficiently and competitively, so we have developed this programme based on the techniques of developing such computer based application systems.
The course is structured to develop your knowledge of information systems to an advanced level in a relatively short time and provide you with the skills employers require.

You may find employment in computer departments of organisations as a trainee programmer, software engineer, system builder, analyst or system tester. Alternatively, you could move into business as a graduate trainee, particularly where a good understanding of information systems, and their potential, is valuable. This degree and the experience you will gain of creating and commissioning computer solutions can open up new opportunities in your existing area.
