Computer technology continues to advance rapidly and the way that technology is consumed has also been changing at a fast pace over recent years. The growth in the use of mobile and web related technologies has exploded, resulting in new challenges for employers and employees. As a result, most organisations today require a number of technologically aware individuals. Computer Science is a practical subject where students can apply the academic principles learned in the classroom to the real-world systems. It’s an intensely creative subject that combines invention and excitement, and can look at the natural world through a digital perspective. You will be looking at: the different hardware components that make up a computer system; how computer systems connect to each other and the internet; how the internet works; how computer systems make a difference in the current society and you will be developing your own pieces of software using either ‘Visual Basic.NET’ or ‘C#’.
