LIT places a huge emphasis on the practical side of learning, and I feel I benefited greatly from that hands on approach rather than trying to absorb a large amount of complex theory. I would say 50% or more of our time was spent in labs or technical classes or hands on work. This practical learning experience has really stood to me in the work environment I now find myself in. Since I left LIT I have constantly been using the practical skills and theory I learned in a number of different projects I have undertaken.
If you are good with your hands, like working with computers, enjoy problem solving and maths then you would be really well suited for both the level 7 and level 8 courses.
