We will provide you with advanced level education in applied software engineering for computing systems. You will gain skills in the use of programming languages and their development environments for the production of efficient software solutions.
This Computing Systems postgraduate degree will give you experience in the analysis, design and development of computing systems solutions relevant to a wide range of applications in industry and business. You will be able to devise multi-tasking software solutions using both high level and assembler language and implement suitable architecture-software constraints for computer applications. You will develop team-working and project management skills that will allow you to effectively contribute novel solutions to the creation and management of large computing projects and to appreciate the techniques employed in managing such projects.
If you’re looking to work in computing and technology industries, this is a great fast-track conversion course for graduates from disciplines unrelated to IT and computing.
