The uptake of digital technology in society has greatly increased our need for interactive computing devices – now an intrinsic part of everyday life for anything and everything from entertainment and education to healthcare, work and transport.
This course focuses on applying computing concepts, such as web technologies and mobile computing systems, with a focus on software development design, as well as usability and Human Computer Interaction (HCI).
The first year of study covers the fundamentals of computing and computer principles including mathematics, programming, computer architecture, usability and information systems.
