Overview

Overview

The aim of this programme is to bring together the many areas that affect the design and development of web-based applications. This is a broad-based degree covering technical, theoretical and design areas. This programme provides a strong grounding in web technology with an emphasis on creativity and innovation. You will develop an understanding of computing, web technologies, programming and interactivity alongside skills in visual design, storytelling, creative thinking, interface design and interactive product development.

Once you have achieved a set of base skills, you will be encouraged to develop your understanding of web technologies through the production of a series of practical projects that require you to adopt increasingly creative solutions and take on greater management of the process. The final year project enables you to develop your skills in a key area of web technology, creating a deep knowledge of a specialist area, and see a product through from initiation to completion.

Throughout the degree there will be opportunities for you to develop independent thinking, self-management, research and analytical skills, teamwork, and the ability to communicate confidently in a variety of forms appropriate to your chosen industry.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To educate in the theory, technology, practice and application of computing and the development of websites and web-based media
  • To understand and follow the emerging technologies in web and media development
  • To become fully aware of technical, social, ethical and legal issues in web-based product development and deployment.
