Summary

Overview

Graduates from a range of subject areas, who wish to add this discipline to their portfolio, have the opportunity to master the technical skills and knowledge required for a career in computing on this course.

You will develop your programming and systems analysis know-how by studying modules such as Object-Oriented Programming and Systems Analysis and Design, while also growing a robust skillset in practical areas including E-Commerce Software and Database Systems and Design.

In your final semester, you will work on your individual project, with the support of an academic supervisor, giving you the opportunity to produce a substantial piece of work on a topic of your choice.

You will be taught by experts from the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility, which is internationally recognised for applied research expertise, ensuring exposure to the most recent developments in both the theory and practice of modern computing.

You can apply even if you have no previous experience in computing, but you will need to demonstrate some aptitude for logical analysis.

Meet like-minded people and develop your practical skills with our diverse computing-related societies, including DMU Hackers, an ethical hacking society who meet weekly to share cyber security skills and take part in events and competitions.

Teaching and assessments

Teaching includes formal lectures, tutorials and labs. You will also be expected to undertake independent study and research to support your assignments and your dissertation. Assessment will be by various group and individual methods including exams, projects, presentations, written essays and reports.
