Computing & Computer Science
Gareth Gavan, BTEC Level 3 in IT.
“The best part of the course has been working with technical staff and students to help me understand the world of IT."
What would you say to anyone thinking of doing the course?
“If you are interested in technology including video games, computers or mobile phones, on a deeper level, this course is definitely for you.”
Within the course you will acquire new skills in analysis and problem solving; programming and software development in low level and high level languages; installation and maintenance of standalone and networked systems; managing and developing networked and web based server systems; and how organisations use and manage data and information.
Computer science covers a broad variety of roles that ensure complex systems and software applications are designed, built and maintained to appropriate standards.
