UK HIGHER NATIONAL DIPLOMA IN COMPUTING
The Diploma in Computer Science and UK Higher National Diploma in Computing and Systems Development programme are designed to give students a strong foundation in computer technologies, the Internet and networking, database administration and programming with the aim of preparing students to become a competent professional in computer science with strong technical and analytical skills.
Computer Science is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanisation of the methodical procedures that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication and access to information.
Students are assessed via continuous assignments, tutorials, industrial training and written examinations culminating with a final year project. Assessment for BTEC Higher National Diploma will solely be assignments based.
