Internship


After the completion of Level 2 students will undertake a short Internship / Industrial Training. This will prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the world of Information Technology


Level 3


The focus of Level 3 is further development of relevant technical skills and the ability to apply these skills with strong critical thinking and analysis. Advanced Wireless Technology, Distributed Computer Systems, Ubiquitous Computing, Computer Systems Security, and Network Troubleshooting build on knowledge and skills acquired at the lower levels to provide an in depth understanding of network computing techniques. General personal and professional development is enhanced in Project Management, while Innovation Management & New Product Development continues the theme of generating new ideas and creating new products. Critical Issues in Managing IS in Organisations and Entrepreneurship ensure that you have a proper understanding and appreciation of relevant issues whether you choose to join an existing organisation or decide to set up your own business.


The Investigations and Project modules provide opportunity for students to further develop the academic and practical aspects of their areas of study and reinforce their independent learning skills. Furthermore, the major project that students are expected to do, will entail extensive research in domain knowledge and acquiring of skills in using tools and methods in the particular specialism. The significant aspect of this level is the demonstration of higher level critical thinking, analysis and application in the award project.
