Level 8

CR106 BSc (Hons) in Software Development – programme updated

One of the benefits of this degree is that it has a broad range of modules. The main focus of the degree is programming, so you will learn languages such as Python, Java, C, JavaScript and PHP. You will also learn about databases (where and how data is stored), operating systems, object-oriented programming, application development, software testing and many more topics.This programme has been designed so that the first year curriculum is common for all degrees in the Department of Computer Science. This means that students can transfer to another programme in the Department in year two if they meet the CAO entry requirements for that programme when they enter CIT. This offers great flexibility for qualifying students who may wish to change programmes after year one. This flexibility allows a student to make a more informed decision one year into his/her studies.
