Course details

Summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Science (PGDipAppSc) is a two semester programme, which builds on an undergraduate Applied Science degree. It allows people who are currently working to undertake blocks of study - one block for the certificate, a second block to complete the diploma. Alternatively, students may wish to complete the 120 point programme in a continuous run.

Software Engineering is about the sound construction of computer systems for today and tomorrow. This includes areas such as modelling complex interactive systems, identifying how computer information systems can be made to improve performance, managing the construction of information systems, and ensuring that procedures are in place for system testing and maintenance.
