Our full time HND in Computing (Application Development) is a specialist computing course, specialising in software and app development.
It is designed to equip you with the knowledge, understanding and skills required for success in current and future employment in an ever expanding IT industry. You will establish essential skills in network design, computer architecture, software development & systems, web design and systems security as well as professional development at Level 4 before choosing specialist option modules at Level 5 to increase your knowledge and skills in software development, prototyping and testing.
Units will be taught using a variety of teaching and learning styles: formal taught sessions, directed learning, tutor-led discussion and seminars, practical workshops with students working individually and/or in groups according to need and their learning preference.
Class sessions will be complemented by independent, self-directed learning using a Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle).
Full-time study is fifteen hours per week, over two semesters, including tutorial time. It is expected that for every hour spent in the classroom, the equivalent is dedicated to independent, self-directed learning outside contact hours.
