LSBU has been delivering Computing courses for many years and has recently enhanced this pathway to provide more emphasis on distributed systems, and software engineering.
The course offers practical skills underpinned by sound theoretical understanding in the analysis, design and development of computer-based systems; an understanding of the hardware, software and network infrastructure that supports them; fundamental insights into the contexts in which they arise and operate and an appreciation of the social, ethical and professional issues associated with their development and operation. You will learn about systems analysis; software, database and web development; business and organisational environments; networks, operating systems and taking a professional approach to providing ethical and socially responsible systems. You will learn to find, evaluate, synthesise and present information in a variety of ways. Building on this core, you study Systematic Software Development, the underlying philosophy of which is the recognition that in the development of software the true professional adopts an engineering approach, with all the implications this has for rigour and quality.
You will develop:
This course will prepare you for a career in administrator and technical fields such as computer operations, computer systems sales and service, programming, systems analysis, software engineering and technical authorship.
You will also be well equipped to work in professions that require a combination of computing and other capabilities, especially in the world of business and commerce.
The course will enable you to develop a wide range of employability skills through the emphasis on a vocational approach to teaching.
LSBU is committed to supporting you develop your employability and succeed in getting a job after you have graduated. Your qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market you also need to work on your employability, and on your career search.
