This programme aims to develop and train graduates with state-of-the-art technical and management knowledge that is urgently needed by our increasingly competitive and global industry. The programme blends software engineering principles, research methodology and database technologies to help broaden the skills and experience of the graduate student.
This programme benefits from the research expertise of the Centre for Innovation Product Development, namely in the area of database and semantic techniques for knowledge-based systems.
The programme has been designed to produce graduates who will assume the responsibility in the acquisition or the design and development of information systems. Due to the strong technical focus on database technologies, students will be well-positioned to pursue industrial certification such as Oracle OCA after graduation.
Stuents will benefit from a range of enterprise software applications such as Oracle 11g (database administration), APEX (web-based application), Adobe Dreamweaver (mobile development).
Previous graduates have been working in a range of fields including IT consultancy, logistics, sales engineering and software development, and overseas government agencies.
The aims of the programme are:
To provide students with an enhanced base of knowledge and current and reflective practice necessary to initiate a career in information and communication technology at the professional engineer level To enhance specialist knowledge in the area of information and communications technology which build upon studies at the undergraduate level.
