Professional Computing

The course is intended for graduates currently working in the computing industry or for those who have been working in computing for a considerable length of time and can demonstrate that they have graduate-level professional skills. This award is innovative in that it combines high level technical training with academic research and masters level study through the University, whilst continuing with full time employment in the computing industry. The course is completely by distance learning, so there is no attendance at the University. The award structure consists of three levels; Certificate, Diploma and Masters. The first two levels act as an entry point to the next level, but if you wish to stop then you can 'cash in' your credits and accept the appropriate award. Main entry point is September but other entry points may be available on application.
