DT093A PG Certificate in Applied Computing for Technologists


DIT Bolton Street

Start date:

Week beginning September 19th 2011


This postgraduate-level programme is designed to provide key skills in core IT subjects to holders of honours degrees in technical, numerate or related disciplines. Participants will develop skills in software development and engineering, and associated areas such as database systems, networks and operating systems. The programme serves both as a conversion programme to allow non-ICT graduates entry into the ICT sector, and as a means for graduates from a range of disciplines to augment their skillset and participate in the increasingly-widespread ICT-rich sectors of their own field.

Course Duration:

1 Year

Career opportunities:

Graduates of this programme will have developed key skills in IT areas such as programming in Java, software engineering, databases and other areas depending on their option choices. This will prepare them for entry into the mainstream IT sector in relevant roles, and for IT-rich areas within their own specialities. Graduates of this programme will in general have a significant advantage compared to their primary degree qualification with respect to the IT sector or IT-rich areas of their field.
