BSc (Hons) Information Communication Technology

Information communication technology (ICT) continues to play a crucial part in effective computer systems that can meet increasing user demands.

We live in a world dominated by online services and social interactions, so the ICT systems behind them must be responsive, reliable and secure. This practical course covers the development and use of ICT systems in business and industry, and focuses on core business technologies. You also have the chance to gain a vendor qualification (at an additional cost), as a substantial part of the Cisco curriculum (CCNA) is covered as part of this course.

While we concentrate on developing the skills you need to understand an organisation’s information and technical needs, you’ll also study elements of computer programming and gain additional skills for a career in technical and end-user support, or application development.
