About this course

This programme is delivered as BSc(Hons) Information and Communication Technology at MDIS in Singapore

The Applied Computing course is specially designed for those who have studied a Foundation Degree or Higher National Diploma (or equivalent) in the UK or overseas and who wish to 'top-up' to a BSc (Hons) degree.

You will study a wide range of topics, from systems development and strategic systems management, to social and current issues in computing, and professional management and practice. You will also complete a case project, which will provide you with the opportunity to apply all of your existing skills to a substantial software development problem.

You will be taught using a range of methods, including lectures and seminars, but also practical workshops, where you will develop your skills in specialist computing laboratories. The computing facilities within the departmet include a 24-hour access computing hub, a computer robotics laboratory and quick access computers in the Matrix.

Northumbria welcomes and encourages international students and the University offers preparatory English language courses (including summer schools) for different levels of ability.

Each module of study is assessed by coursework assignments or end-of-module examinations or both. All modules have some elements of practical work, the majority of which require the use of computer systems.

The individual project may be initiated by the University, the student, or an external client and consists of an end product and a report explaining and evaluating the project process.
