This programme is intended to develop a detailed knowledge of computer and communications engineering concepts. Students gain a comprehensive knowledge of ICT tools and techniques. The practical focus of this programme allows graduates to enter the workplace with a highly marketable range of knowledge, skills and experience. Students are given the opportunity to explore the complexities and vulnerabilities of modern information systems.
Students are also exposed to a whole range of tools, languages, methodologies and architectures. It is, however, not sufficient to know how to use the different applications, students also need to develop the ability to plan, manage and deliver projects successfully.
The content of this programme of study has ensured that all these fundamental sets of knowledge and skills are fully integrated. Additionally, there are core courses in management and professional practice. Students can opt for a year in industry between their second and final year.
