Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

You will be provided with a grounding in computer networking technologies, electronics and communications and web development, together with a knowledge of business operations, management and finance.

Expertise and practical experience is gained to enable you to diagnose, repair and maintain computer and network hardware and system software. For example, you will be able to evaluate and upgrade computer systems. You will also be able to support all peripheral equipment which connects to computer networks, so that you will be able to support the services that this equipment provides to users. You will also gain experience in controlling external devices using computers, e.g. surveillance systems, robots, industrial automation systems, etc.

Software is also an integral part of all networks so you will be able to install and maintain a wide range of network and system software, including operating systems, such as Windows, UNIX and Linux. You gain valuable skills in network security, web design and web services.

An industry standard education coupled with four to seven month work/business placement will complement your academic learning and ensure that on graduation you can immediately apply your skills.

This programme has an emphasis on continuous assessment. A great deal of your time will be spent working on assignments and projects. You will learn by doing and working on hands-on applications rather than from theory. You acquire the skills needed in these areas by using them in real life situations as part of your assignments and projects. Some modules still retain an end of semester exam.

The programme is structured to permit exit after successful completion of Year 2 with a Higher Certificate.
