Students can choose to partially complete a stage in one academic year, and then complete the remainder of the stage in the next academic year. Students can also select modules from multiple stages in one academic year, once they have successfully completed, or been made exempt from, all prerequisite modules for the modules they select.

After completion of this course, the student will have strengthened their knowledge, skills and competence across Operating Systems, Programming, Networking, Database Design, Web Development, Software Engineering, Professional Issues, and Software Project Management amongst other many other areas.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this programme are equipped with an industry-relevant qualification, facilitating their entry into the ICT industry or their progression within this industry. As is typical of an undergraduate qualification, graduates have knowledge and skills across the breadth of the ICT area with a specialisation through their choice of domain for their final year project.

Graduates of the BSc (Honours) can apply for membership of the Chartered Institute for Information Technology and can apply for status as Chartered IT Professional or Chartered Engineer following the acquisition of relevant experience post-graduation.


Exemptions from certain modules and/or stages may be available to students who have already completed a relevant academic programme.
