This course has been introduced to address a significant market demand for skills associated with the design of distributed computing/sensing environments and the networks that underpin them. It encompasses computer technology, in terms of both hardware and software, as well as computer communications and networking incorporating Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs) together with network management and the Internet of Things. It also covers fundamental programming and security knowledge as well as specializing in network programming and other aspects of distributed computing. The course teaching Python as a tool for learning programming Linux skills are taught throughout the course and emphasis is placed on learning the basics before moving onto advanced topics. Graduates from the course will have sound knowledge of computer systems and processes involved in software development and maintenance. The aim of this program is to prepare the students for the areas of ICT stated to be most in demand and for positions that are most difficult to fill. On completion of the four year degree, students who have performed well will be eligible to complete an extra year of study to obtain an honours qualification, Bachelor of Science (Honours) (BH-SCNCE) or enter the Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering (GD-PROENG).
