Computing (Mobile Application Development) BSc (Hons)

Our specialist Mobile Application Development course will develop your understanding of the aspects that face mobile computing in today’s society. You will assess a range of platforms that users may interact with, their expectations of products and the overcoming issues that they may experience, with a view to improving the usability of systems. Computing is an integral part of people’s daily lives, and businesses, and it continues to grow and evolve. You will investigate the wide reaching influences that computers and computing technology have on the world, whilst also making your own contributions to help you find your place within the industry.

You will be given a sound understanding of mobile computer systems, mobile and wireless networks, network planning and development, mobile devices, internet and computer security, multimedia technologies and data communication, including their relevance to modern industry and commerce. You will reinforce your theoretical knowledge through practical work in our computer facilities.

This course is taught through a variety of activities and problem solving challenges, so that you can apply your theoretical knowledge. Being able to analyse problems, implement statistical methods, research solutions and apply them in new ways, are all skills that are highly valued in the computing industry.
