Whether you have some experience but no formal qualification in Information Technology, or have a first degree in a subject other than Information Technology, this distinctive programme allows graduates without IT qualifications the chance to enter the business computing profession. As a graduate from this course you'll understand IT from a business perspective, be able to create a systems view of business system development, as well as being able to implement systems. For many organisations their software infrastructure actually forms a core part of their business function so it is vital that those developing software systems understand how the business process and strategy shape the development of IT applications. The Information Technology programme exposes graduates to all of these aspects of modern business systems. Instead of focussing on traditional software development, greater emphasis is given to the development of business systems such as web systems and database systems. The placement option on this degree is an excellent opportunity for you to gain first-hand industry experience. Companies that have taken our Computing students include IBM, Barclays Bank, Lockheed Martin, Sun Microsystems, United Advertising, Hewlett-Packard and British Aerospace.
