Breaking down barriers between disciplines, you can take this course as either a BSc or a BA. You’ll explore the complex international, social, technical and cultural systems which pervade modern society, of which the web is only a small part. We use the term 'internet' to refer to a broad range of technical infrastructure, services, data sources, devices and software that is embedded in our homes, that we carry with us in our pockets and that has such an influence on the way we live our lives.
You’ll be introduced to fundamental web skills including graphic design, HTML, CSS, client and server-side scripting, and get to grips with advanced topics such as pervasive media, network architectures, social media applications and cloud services. This rich combination of topics ensures that you have the knowledge and abilities to design and develop current, as well as future generations of internet systems.
On completion of this course, you’ll have industry relevant skills and abilities that are in high demand. You could go straight into a career developing web applications, social media systems, mobile apps or Internet of Things applications or infrastructure. You might want to start your own business, or go on to further study at masters level or PhD
