Applied Computing is the point where computing, science, design, and society meet. You will learn how technologies are integrated to build systems, how to find out what your users need their software to do and how to design useful and usable software.
Applied Computing has a strong practical focus: this programme emphasises hands-on opportunities to gain competence with a range of technologies including databases, website development tools, and visual software development environments. You will learn to use these tools to solve real problems, focusing on business applications. Since Computing is a fast-changing field, you will also learn how to learn about new technologies - how to quickly develop skills in new software technology by building on what you know about how software-based systems work.
