  • You will learn the vital requirements for a business system, and be given an in-depth understanding of the complex nature of software development.
  • This course will help you will grow practical skills in tackling user interface and database design issues, as well as system process modelling topics.
  • You will learn how to manage a software project by producing the criteria which will monitor the project’s progress and measure outcomes.
  • The University of Greenwich has a long-standing relationship with the British Computer Society (BCS), which accredits our computing degree programmes. As this programme was extensively updated in 2019, it has a current designation of Partial Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) accreditation for the 2019 intake. The accreditation status is expected to be confirmed in spring 2022 after the first cohort of students graduate. Students will be kept updated on the status of this. In the very unlikely event that this does not progress as expected the university will support students with individual BCS membership applications at the point of

     

    graduation.
