This programme is designed for individuals wishing to pursue careers as Computer Science professionals.
Students study, employ and reflect on the principles underpinning Computer Science. computer languages, communications, operating systems, computer graphics, Human Computer Interaction, Artificial Intelligence and High Performance Computing are key areas of focus within this programme of study. Students will reflect on the latest technologies and programming languages and, develop a sound theoretical understanding and in-depth practical experience of designing, constructing and modifying a wide range of software systems.
The emphasis is in the underlying theories and practices in software construction. The students will reflect on the analysis, design and construction and the management of the whole software engineering life cycle using a number of approaches and methodologies. The programme leads the students to reflect on the choice of appropriate software tools and techniques through the study of realistic industrial case studies.
Opportunities exist within the programme to take industrial examinations such as Cisco, Microsoft and Sun Java certifications. From Artificial Intelligence to software design and software patterns, from High Performance Computing and virtualisation to computer graphics, at the end of the programme students are equipped to deal with the most intense demands of modern software development and related techniques.
The programme also aims to give the students the ability to further develop themselves in a rapidly changing discipline by becoming reflective practitioners.
Students are expected to be proficient in the key theoretical and practical areas in Computer Science, including their application to modern software systems development.
Students should be able to work as consultants or senior team members developing distributed computing applications. Students should also be able to pursue further research study in the areas of AI, Computer Science and other application areas requiring substantial software development.
