Course Information

You will initially cover the fundamental principles that are key to computing technology and its various uses. The first year shares common modules with all Computing students, giving you flexibility and choice if you specialise for your second years. You can maintain a multidisciplinary approach, giving you more flexibility for future career options.

Our specialist course will give you a technical understanding of the most widely used system architectures, as well as an introduction to the wider areas of computing, such as cloud systems and media technology. When you graduate from this course you will be able to develop robust and reusable software systems. You will have opportunities to reinforce your theoretical knowledge through practical work in our computer facilities.

During your first year you will study common modules with all Computing students, giving you flexibility and choice when you specialise for your second and third years. These will cover fundamental principles such as computer systems, communications, problem solving, programming and internet technology. In the second year you specialise in System Engineering where you will explore the formal specifications for software systems as well as system design and development. You will also focus on the design of microprocessor systems as well as digital signal processing, and you will examine how to design, programme and optimise graphics for 2D platforms.

You will complete a group project in the second year, where you will be part of a small design team working to produce an innovative and bespoke solution to a real world challenge.

When you complete the HND, you may be able to study for an additional year to achieve the BSc (Hons) qualification.
