Best Course Studies in Computer Networking 2017. The Engineering and Computer Science university foundation course enables students to apply for university degree courses in a variety of subjects including Engineering, Computer Information Systems, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Computer Systems Engineering. Why take the Engineering and Computer Science Foundation Year? Our Engineering and Computer Science course allows students to develop a strong grounding in relevant scientific subjects. This begins by developing their technical skills and encouraging an analytical approach to problem solving. The Computer Science element of the pathway covers theoretical and practical aspects of approaching problems and challenges in hardware or software, while the Engineering aspect introduces students to different fields of engineering including Electronic, Mechanical, Civil, and Electrical. Taking a foundation year is one of the best ways to gain the knowledge and skills that will help you stand out from the crowd when you go to university. Studying within ORA’s Oxbridge-style tutorials, our dedication to small class sizes means that students receive regular, personalised feedback from their expert tutors. Outcomes After successfully taking the Engineering and Computer Science foundation year: You will be ready to start university in the UK or another English-speaking country You will have made UK university applications and received assistance in getting offers You will have improved your IELTS score ready for university entry You will have improved your study skills, including exam technique and ICT skills You will have gained an understanding of subjects allied to Engineering and Computer Science appropriate to your choice of undergraduate degree Modules In each Foundation course, students have 25 hours of contact time per week. There is, in addition, timetabled and supervised guided study time, when students are expected to be completing coursework or revising for exams, as well as timetabled self-study time. All students study compulsory modules: Introduction to Engineering and Computer Science EFL for Academic Purposes (introductory) * EFL for Academic Purposes (advanced) *(Students on the six-month fast-track programme do not take the introductory EFL course) Academic Modules Having studied the Introductory module, students then choose three more module options from the following: Maths Foundations of Computing Computer Programming Physics Engineering Game Development Robotics (Please note that additional modules may become available during the year, and that not all modules run every year; to check that your chosen modules will be on offer, please contact us). English Language Modules These modules cover all the core skills in the study of English as a foreign or second language. They enable students to improve their language skills rapidly, while incorporating the study of English grammar to ensure that standards of accuracy are maintained as students progress. Additionally, exam preparation classes help students achieve the highest IELTS level of which they are capable when they come to sit the exam. The ORA approach to English language teaching on the University Foundation programme is to make sure students become familiar with the requirements of an academic degree course. The modules cover not only the spoken language competencies that universities require, but also teach students the norms of essay, report, and other document writing in Anglophone universities, which may be different from those in their home countries, so that students are prepared for every aspect of the writing skills that they will need at university. Additional support Our dedicated team advises students on the often complicated process of getting a place at a UK university, from choosing which universities to apply to, all the way up to admission. For students who are unfamiliar with the UCAS system and with UK universities generally, this advice is invaluable in simplifying and explaining the process so that students can get the offers they need and deserve. We cover the following: Choosing your university Writing a personal statement University entrance exams Interview practice Academic writing skills English presentation skills Debate and discussion Academic research skills Note-taking and note-making Examination technique Start dates: January and September Entry requirement: 12 years schooling, Age 17 on entry, 4 GCSEs or equivalent at Grade C or above, at least IELTS 5.5 (IELTS 6.0 in the case of fast-track students).

FdSc Computing with Networking

New College Durham
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 United Kingdom Durham

Information Technology and Web-based solutions are an integral part of all business types including public sector, private sector, public companies, retail and education. All companies, large and small, are affected by the by use of IT both to trade and to support the business. [+]

Information Technology and Web-based solutions are an integral part of all business types including public sector, private sector, public companies, retail and education. All companies, large and small, are affected by the by use of IT both to trade and to support the business. The Foundation Degree in Applied Business Computing is aimed at students who want to develop their skills and knowledge of computer systems to develop and support web-based and commercial systems in all types of businesses to an advanced level. At least one third of the modules in this foundation degree are devoted specifically to web-based and e-skills, with the remainder focusing on generic/commercial systems. Work placement can provide further opportunities for students to develop their chosen specialism skills. Level: 4 and 5 Credit Value: 120 Awarded by: New College Durham Venue: New College Durham Studying This programme aims to develop individuals wishing to progress to skilled technical and support level positions in website development, internet systems operations and technical website database support, along with the management and development of an e-business operation. Opportunities are available to obtain professional advanced qualifications from the British Computer Society. At the end of the course students will be able to demonstrate, at foundation degree level, that they have: Knowledge of the generic principles and practice in relation to how web based and commercial systems are developed and how they support the Business and IT Sector Understanding the characteristics of different organisations and the technical and economic environments in which they operate and the challenges that they face Acquired and applied a range of advanced technical skills relevant to web based and commercial computer systems, integrated with work-related experience A substantial work placement element is involved in year 2. With both year 1 and year 2 additional study outside of college is required. Entry Criteria Standard Entry Criteria: At least 3 GCSEs at grade C or above, normally including Maths & English (or appropriate Functional Skills at Level 2 and IT related subjects; and a minimum of 120 UCAS Credits generated from A Level/AS Level, BTEC/GNVQ/NVQ at Level 3; and to successfully complete an interview with the programme team. You may be asked to complete an IT skills audit test. Entry requirements may vary for those with relevant experience. Applicants must provide a personal statement and attend an interview. Non-standard entry criteria: A personal statement must be provided; attend a successful interview with a member of the team; an IT audit test (if applicable). Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) If you have previously studied on a similar award and have gained higher education credit at an equivalent level it may be possible to take this into account to gain exemptions from one or more modules. Progression opportunities A foundation degree constitutes the first two levels (4 & 5) of a higher education qualification. Students may wish to progress to a Level 6 award as a ‘top up’ to their qualification: ordinarily progression would be direct to an Honours Degree and the first two levels would be accepted as accreditation of prior achievement (APA). Sometimes students join an existing programme at year 3 but some institutions have developed specific top-up Honours programmes. Some HEIs may require additional study prior to progression onto their Level 6 qualification to ensure the student has the relevant knowledge and skills to enter that named award. There are Honours programmes at all of the local HEIs that will consider students from this foundation degree, or indeed throughout the UK. [-]
