This degree is aimed at students who want to study a course with an emphasis on its applications in business and industry. The degree provides grounding in computer science together with coverage of CIS and new media technologies. The CIS for Business course covers the use of computers in a business environment, teaching you programming, software development, and the latest technologies, along with their application in business and business methods.
We will develop your understanding of the fundamentals underpinning CIS and its applications in industry. You will be able to describe the operation of such software systems and apply therelated principles into the implementation of properly engineered software. Crucially you will also understand the drivers for future trends in this fast-moving area. New modules have recently been introduced that will enable you to design and build your own computer network. This work will be undertaken in a recently developed specialist network laboratory.
