This vocational study can be any qualification we accept, such as a BTEC National Diploma or two BTEC National Extended Certificates , and should include sufficient Engineering content. If you are studying a BTEC National Extended Diploma or BTEC Extended Diploma in Engineering as part of your IBCP, then we may be able to consider you without Higher Level Mathematics alongside. Working with the latest digital technology, you’ll design systems such as embedded microprocessors, programmable integrated circuits or high-performance computers. You’ll learn how to use industry standard programming and hardware design languages, operating systems and applications.

  • The module also explores the differences between coding for a desktop computer and a mobile device together with the creation of apps that operate in a multi-tiered and distributed environment.
  • Data Systems Computers is a complete IT-solutions business with over 25 years of experience We have shown healthy growth every year and pride ourselves in our professionalism .
  • Students work part-time and on placements, and enjoy work-related learning across all three years of study.
  • Students who have studied the Tawjihiyah will need to complete a suitable Foundation Year.
  • Students will also learn how to apply Unified Modelling Language within different computing scenarios.

This flexibility is a unique approach to the study of Computing and is Ulster’s first course to offer ‘Variable Rate Progression’ . VRP provides huge flexibility, enabling you to complete the degree part-time in 3, 4, 5 or 6 years. Each year, you will have the opportunity review and adjust your degree pathway to best fit around your needs and ever changing commitments. Prof. O’Hallaron and his students perform research in the area of computer -systems.

The module provides students with an opportunity to analyse risk management, information risk assessment, risk mitigation, management standards and methodologies, implementing a risk management strategy and business continuity planning. Our entry requirements are listed under the ‘United States of America’ section.

Sixty credits are the equivalent of 1200 notional hours of study; this includes contact time with staff and your own independent learning. Our laboratories are designed to be similar to industrial workspaces so you gain an insight into what it is like to work in a professional environment. These include laboratories for autonomous systems, robotics, tomography, bioelectronics, superconductivity and power electronics. We also have facilities for opto- and nano-electronics, additive manufacturing, printed circuit board prototyping and a mechanical workshop. Our experience and understanding of the market means we can help you analyse your business objectives, assess your current systems and working practices in order to specify IT solutions that are tailored to meet very specific requirements.
