With ongoing social distancing regulations likely to continue in place into the academic year 2020/21 WIT is reviewing delivery modes of part-time courses for the coming year. This may mean a change from the typical course delivery schedule. We are planning to publish the listing of part-time courses that will be offered for 2020/21 with further details on schedules and modes of delivery in early July

The new WIT BSc in Computing is designed to provide students with in-depth understanding of the practical skills and theoretical knowledge underpinning computer systems. The degree focuses on the analysis, design and understanding of systems capable of storing data that connect to user interfaces through an array of middleware technologies whilst exposing students to the importance of security.

The course adopts a practical approach to learning that encourages students to become independent learners who can manage themselves as an individual or in group situations and have skills and ability to set and achieve relevant, challenging and manageable goals.
